I asked some Canadian students what Serbian sounds like to them. I started by showing them a clip from a Serbian TV show. Then I asked them to guess which language was in the sample played to them. They could also take visual clues such as the script and ethnicity of the people in the sample video.
Most of them thought it was one of the romance languages, like Spanish or Italian. In fact, I also thought the first few seconds of the clip sounded like a romance language.
Finally, I asked them to imitate what they have heard for native Serbian speakers to hear what their language sounds like to foreigners. This segment took some convincing because the subjects did not want to offend anyone and seem racist. Therefore please do not blame them if you are offended, I asked them to do it and most of them did it reluctantly.
I used "Miljana Gavrilović - Tačno 9 (4.3.2014)" as the sample.
