Serbians and Croatians, now part of the same nation, speak the same language, but they use different characters when they write. Neither could read the handwriting of the other, so now in this village school near Beograd (Belgrade) both alphabets are taught. Three pupils occupy each large desk in this modern classroom. Girls sit up front and boys prefer the seats farthest from teacher's desk, just asthey dothe world over.
