A Slavic language family member, Serbian is spoken by approximately 7 million people in Serbia, as well as countries such as Albania, Macedonia and Turkey.
The official national language of Serbia, Serbian bears a range of similarities to the languages of former Yugoslav countries, Bosnia and Croatia. Many linguists compare the similarities found in these three languages with the level of similarities found between British English, American English and Australian English. Many of the differences are found in the vocabulary of the three languages. However, the written languages look very different, with Serbian using the Cyrillic alphabet and Croatian utilising the Latin alphabet. However, outside of more formal situations, an increasing number of Serbian speakers are utilising the Latin alphabet.
