These are the gymnasiums and vocational schools. The gymnasium provides a broad curriculum which usually includes subjects such as History, Geography, Chemistry, Languages and Matematicss and  prepares students for  university . The 2nd type –the vocational schools allow students in their senior years to specialise in employment or work related areas.

Family

Serbia-footbal-matchA consistent feature of life in Serbia is the pleasure families gain from joining to together with their extended family for special holidays where much feasting and talking with one another takes place.  Children are specially valued in Serbia. Parents tend to be protective but allow their children independence in meeting up with friends for coffee, hanging out and attending sporting events.  Serbian teenagers arrange such meetings themselves and are used to managing transport arrangements for themselves as Serbian parents are less likely to drive their children to such events as is the case in many other countries .  Young people in Serbia often live at home longer than in some Western countries with siblings often sharing bedrooms in family apartments.  Young people in Serbia are genuinely interested in meeting others from different parts of the world and hearing about different ways of living.  Such interest is well appreciated by exchange students to Serbia.
