Abstract

Being one of the older migrant communities, the Croatian community in Australia is progressively losing proficient speakers of Croatian. Whether they are native speakers who have been living in Australia for decades or second-generation speakers, most Croatian speakers are unable to express themselves appropriately when discussing topics beyond everyday language.
In an attempt to fill this gap, SBS Croatian and the Croatian Studies Centre have developed and have been producing “Easy Croatian,” a weekly podcast aimed at helping speakers of Croatian as a second language and advanced learners of Croatian, primarily in Australia, to maintain and advance their language proficiency. Australian and other news are written in simpler and shorter sentences and read at a slower pace. Each podcast comes with a transcript, glossary, and a quiz. The podcast is available on all major podcast platforms and has been receiving positive feedback from users from all over the globe.
