Learning Croatian: Phrase of the Week – Get Outta Here!

Croatia211

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 Word:

šibaj (she:by)

driver

The term šibaj is used when you want to move some along, tell them to hurry up, shake their butts or simply to pi*s off. Chucking in ‘ajde’ (go) in front of it is also common.

If you have a candidate for ‘Word / Phrase of the Day’, then submit them to croatiaweek1@gmail.com to be published.
