Emilija Beloš

Born and raised in Belgrade, Serbia, Emilija finished her studies in the Spanish language and literature at the University of Belgrade. However, she has been working with Serbian as a foreign language for many years now. Her motivation to dedicate herself to Serbian came from the need to help foreigners learn the Serbian language faster and more easily, as she knows that there aren’t many resources available for its learning. She speaks Serbian, English, and Spanish fluently and understands a bit of German, Portuguese, and Hungarian. In her free time, she loves to dance to dancehall and afro rhythms, participate in aerial sports, paint, and read. At BLS, she handles marketing and makes sure everything runs smoothly to keep students happy with their lessons and courses.

Our Story

Belgrade Language School was founded by Emilija and Igor Beloš. The two met during Igor’s exchange semester in Belgrade where they connected quickly due to their shared interest in languages. At the time, Igor was frustrated by the difficulty of finding good Serbian teachers and Serbian language learning materials. Therefore, he decided to open his own language school which would help foreigners and heritage learners like himself learn the Serbian language properly. However, he could have never done it without the help of an experienced teacher and language expert, and it did not take long until Ema agreed to join in on the adventure. Finally, in 2020, the two started working on the idea and pushed through major obstacles such as the quarantine and its difficult measures. Today, BLS is the biggest online Serbian language school in the world with hundreds of students from all parts of the world and the ambition to help as many people as possible learn Serbian.
