Multimedia English Projects by Lingva Students from Gorenje 2016/2017

We have recently completed this year’s cycle of Business and Technical English courses for students from the Gorenje d.o.o. company. The cooperation between Gorenje and Lingva in the area of language education has been going on for many years and is maximally based on meeting the individual students’ needs and developing their communicative skills.   Since the syllabuses included practice of oral presentation skills, students have jointly made a series of attractive multimedia projects,  which have been published on our web site www.lingva.com/cafe:

SAVE THE WALLNUT TREE DRIVE CONTINUED WITH LEGO BRICKS

We proudly announce that we have saved two more walnut trees – the seventh and the eighth –  from cutting, together with their scops owlets, which kept hooting for help in our lush green, so fully walnut-and-linden-scented Valjevo! Look at our latest news reports illustrated with LEGO bricks, and published with LEGO StoryStarter program, with the little help from our teacher Katarina Vićentijević.

MORE CREATIONS WITH LEGO STORYSTARTER BRICKS

What more can you wish for than have a sunny day to walk your dog or play volleyball, and finish the day feeding your pet and having a round of the mobile phone games. Or have a fantastic day at the seaside spoiled by and ugly witch and her sister to be saved by the most handsome prince in the world and to be kissed by him at the end only to wake up and realise it was just a dream … Or have another dream in which you fight a terrible battle against some soldiers to, it’s hard to believe, actually save a witch who has just treated you with a lunch, but again your dream gets interrupted; this time by the rattle of breakfast plates. We presented all of this with Lego bricks and turned into comic strips with LEGO StoryStarter program and a little help from our teacher Ivana Lazić.

Spring News from Serbia, Valjevo & Lingva

Our adult students Natasa Simjanovska, Jelena Davidovic, Natasa Damnjanovic, Stanko Markovic and Radisa Jovanovic, from General English group B1+/a, supported by teacher Ivana Lazic, prepared some interesting news for us about topical events this spring in our country, town and language school Lingva. We can read about some good and some not-so-good events, such as a case of mugging in Valjevo and a traffic accident in Pirot, paying homage to actor Dragan Nikolić, but also about a wine festival in Valjevo, and especially about how finely tuned and cooperative their language group is, especially when they discuss varous issues, and how fond they are of their teacher Ivana.

Presentations by Lingva Students of Technical English: Graphene

A dilligent group of Lingva students of Technical English at B2.a level from the Gorenje company has recently given presentations on a miraculous graphene material, for which two scientists, Geim and Novoselov won the Nobel prize in Physics in 2010. Graphene caught attention of several groups of scientits in Serbia as well, and Novak Đoković has been using racquets reinforced with graphene, which makes them lighter and more durable than rackets used to date. Vesna Kosovec, Dalibor Andrić, Vasilije Andrić and Vlada Petrović have made interesting presentations in which each of them, from their own perspective, pointed out countless advantages of this material of the future.

What Helps My Team Learn Better

In March this year Lingva Business English students at C1.b level from Gorenje took part in the multimedia project “What Helps My Team Learn Better“, one part of which refers to giving a presentation about a hobby or topic they are personally interested in and designing activities that will engage the most frequent multiple intelligences of the group in the best possible way. All of these student-made English learning activities are aimed at extending the scope of the given course syllabus with additional language practice, closely tailored to the needs of students. The diligent students did their best!
