“Sarajevo has a soul. It has a heart.”

My passion for Ladino/Judeo-Spanish is no secret. In this video, Richard Simcott (the hyperpolyglot extraordinnaire) and I speak in Bosnian/Serbo-Croatian (or whatever else you like to call this language) about the beauty of Sarajevo and how the Ladino language saved a boy’s life in World War II. Richard and both lived in Sarajevo but at different times.


  1. I am impressed by the way you speak Serbian-Croatian-Bosnian :)! I am native Serbian speaker and I am also fluent in English. I would like to learn German. That is how I came upon your site. Thanks for the tips. I need to find your book “Language Is Music” All the best to you.
