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.
Today’s phrase of the day is following on from yesterday’s theme and is a word that captures a slice of Dalmatia. Although many argue that the ‘true’ Galeb has died out as times have moved on and changed, the label ‘Galeb’ was given to one who was a successful womaniser, a smooth operator who was Don Juan-esq. The Galeb has a gift of the gab and a way to woo the ladies, especially the unsuspecting tourists on the beaches of Dalmatia. The literal translation is – seagull.
