The core foundation for Compass Croatia hails from offering Croatia language instruction via an international language portal for all languages for several years. After 100’s of students and lessons, we consistently discovered that as people wanted to learn the Croatian language for many different reasons, they also wanted to learn the culture.
As with any language learning, learning the culture of food and beverage, music, entertainment, crime, taxes and numerous other topics can be integrated into the learning process.
We tailor your language instruction to your needs and style. We can provide you homework, or NOT!😉As Croatian, we speak English fluently but also understand several other languages to assist in you learning the Croatian language.
PACKAGES AND PAYMENT
- Payment has to be done in advance, when the lesson is scheduled, and for the specific package all at once

Croatian has been the official language for 50 years, even though Croatia was founded in 1991! – On June 25, 1991, Croatia declared its independence from Yugoslavia, a declaration that would lead to the formation of today’s Republic of Croatia. Identifying Croatian as a separate language was an essential part of this declaration of independence and Croatia’s definition of its national identity. Croatia was part of Yugoslavia from 1918 to 1991. Croatian had already been declared an official language of this region in 1967 when Croatian was recognized in the Declaration on the Status and Name of the Croatian Standard Language.

Ok, so do you want the good news or the bad news first?🤪
Good news📰 – Croatia is now part of the EU, which it’s intent was to help modernize our government and how it serves it’s people.
Bad news😒 – Becoming part of the EU has made the bureaucracy and paperwork process excruciating. The video parody is not exaggerating!
