I always look forward to my lessons with Marino. I feel like I am making great progress and always feel challenged (in a positive way!). If you are interested in learning or improving your Croatian, I can definitely recommend Marino as a teacher.

Marino is great, always adapts to your needs and "moods", you'll never get bored with him, he teaches with reference to Croatia's culture and customs :)

Thanks for the great lesson. He speaks clearly and adapts his speech to your level. I was able to understand quite a lot. Marino is patient, friendly and provides lots of tips and ideas, and also helps you with useful expressions that are a reflection of how the language is used today. He gave me some ideas for Youtube channels to follow, songs, and created a bridge between other Slavic languages, where the similarities and differences are to be found. This helps me get a better overview and acquire in-depth knowledge!

Marino is an excellent teacher! He provides both a great mix of listening, speaking and practical learning activities and a very safe, supportive learning environment.

Another GREAT lesson today! Marino walked me through the 7 cases (nominative, genitive, dative, accusative, vocative, locative and instrumental). For me (and perhaps for others, too), this is a very complex area (and it was a challenging lesson). Marino took time to explain everything and to answer all of my questions (and while some of them probably weren't the best questions to ask, he seemed to understand why I was confused, and he provided explanations that helped me to make sense of the material). He has a thorough understanding of the nuances of Croatian! There are MANY things that I like about Marino, but the best one might be this: It is abundantly clear (particularly in light of my challenges today) that he TRULY CARES about whether his students understand the material presented. In today's lesson, he worked hard to come up with explanations that I was able to understand. You can't ask for more than that. Next lesson already scheduled! Thanks again, Marino!
