Our Best Friends and Dear Cousins

A lot of love, patience and hard work has been invested in these charming presentations of best friends and close cousins by young teenage students in A2.b and A1.a groups and their teacher Katarina Ristic at Lingva. This new generation has many interesting things to reveal to us – we can learn that not only PE is the most popular subject but also math, that they like to be surrounded with pets and go out for a walk with a dog and actively do more than one sport. Their meeting points are city squares and their destination is most often Pećina Park. The music they listen to are songs by Marcus and Martines Shakira, and they adore acting of Kira Kosarin on the Nickelodeon channel. What can be more delicious than eating spaghetti and attractive than going to the seaside in Greece.

FOUR LINGVA TEACHERS HELD WORKSHOPS AT ELTA CONFERENCE DEDICATED TO YOUNG LEARNERS

On March 3rd 2018 Lingva teachers Marija Matić Grujić, Katarina Ristić, Katarina Andrić, Marija Milovanović and Lora Petronić-Petrović attended the conference ‘SIG Day Joy of Teaching Young Learners’, which was held at the Faculty of Legal and Business Studies Dr Lazar Vrkatic in Novi Sad, Serbia.

Teachers were presented with some practical and innovative ideas which they could use while teaching young learners.

Three Lingva teachers Marija Matić Grujić, Marija Milovanović and Katarina Andrić held a workshop called Tricks with Brick in which they showed how LEGO® bricks and StoryStarter educational software can be used for foreign language learning. Participants got familiarized with using LEGO® bricks to enhance listening, speaking, sreading and writing. They also got to experience building stories with bricks and their feedback was very positive, particularly pointing out that these activities would boost students’ creativity and self-confidence.

Another Lingva teacher, Lora Petronić Petrović, held a presentation Speaking and Listening with Polly the Porcupine, which was aimed at practising listening and speaking skills, with special emphasis on speaking skills according to YLE Starters format.

This workshop shows the way of adapting coursebook material to the features of Cambridge Starters Exam. At “Lingva”, private language school in Valjevo, the main material for teaching used in classes are different course book series from renowned publishers, since not all students take this exam. In view of the fact that the test and portfolio items format differ from the one in Cambridge YLE Starters Exam, author of the activities shows the ways of exposing students to exercises which will both, bring test format closer to them, and put them in the exam similar circumstances from the very beginning of the school year. The activities presented are based on New Chatterbox 2 coursebook by Derek Strange Units 7 and 8, as well as Starters Exam Speaking part.

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.

17th Cambridge YLE Certificate Award at Lingva

Here is one more beautiful day in this month full of certificates and awards! 19 of us, plus buddies, sisters, brothers, mums, dads, grannies, grandpas, auntie and uncles, as well as our teachers, have gathered at the big Lingva’s classroom to celebrate excellent results of Cambridge English Young Learners’ Exams on the Starters, Movers and Flyers levels. Starters were the best this year, with almost all winning 14 or 15 out of the total 15 Cambridge shields. Movers and Flyers almost reached them, earning 5 shields each in most of the language skills. Our best skill is speaking and we are ready to chat with friends from all over the world, in Valjevo, other places in Serbia, and other countries and show them how well we can use our English.

Our Kitty Cats

It was finally our turn to build stories with LEGO® bricks and write about our kitty cats. They are really naughty – when they do not fight they knock down the telephone, let our kite fly away, or fall into the sea. We always have to rescue them. Naughty, naughty kitty cats!

Our teacher Milica Marić kept us company and helped a lot.

My Last Weekend – Brick Creation

Our weekends are usually very quiet becuse we are all relaxed , but from time to time little mishaps happen and disturb our peace. They can give us a bit of a fright, such as when we come across a snake in the countryside, make us a little sad if somebody falls down and hurt themselves, but very often we are amuzed and have a good laugh when animals or people bungle things and cause a great commotion. Here are short news stories with lego brick illustrations about our last weekend of summer holiday. Teacher Marija Milovanović helped us in creating them.
