You know some basic Croatian, enough to get you by, but there is nothing that will impress more than knowing a local phrase or slang that you can slip into a conversation…
Our ‘Word / Phrase of the Week’ will teach you a variety of words and phrases commonly used in Croatia, but not commonly found in language learning material.
– Da ga nema trebalo bi ga izmisliti
The phrase “Da ga nema trebalo bi ga izmisliti” is commonly used to describe a person who ceases to amaze, a real character, and literally translates as ‘if he didn’t exist you would have to invent him’.
