In eastern Kosovo, a small town is trying to encourage dialogue between its Albanian and Serb communities by starting with the basics: language.

This year in Kamenica, a municipality where 10 percent of the population is ethnic Serb, the local government launched free language courses in hopes of breaking down the mistrust that still divides the two groups across much of Kosovo.

There is a practical element too.

“I am learning Serbian because I live here, work here and have Serb customers who do not speak Albanian,” says Suna Zajmi, a 32-year-old Albanian pharmacist who has been taking the classes.
