Nastavnici Lingve su 12. aprila 2024. organizovali 31. Lingvinu internu radionicu, pod nazivom Lingvine nastavne iskrice 6.

Kolege iz Lingve Valjevo: Danijela Beljić, Ognjen Petković, Lora Petronić Petrović, Katarina Ristić i Mirjana Ljiljak-Vukajlović, zajedno sa Sofijom Ljiljak-Vukajlović iz Lingve Beograd, održali su niz radionica na razne teme, predstavljajući izbor najdelotvornijih aktivnosti u nastavi engleskog za sve uzraste i nivoe znanja.

Teme su obuhvatale motivisanje tinejdžera kroz muziku, jezičke aukcije, društvene medije, obnavljanje vokabulara sa NTC poligonima  i integrisanje digitalnih alata u razvijanje veština govora i pisanja.

Meet our favourite singers and actors

 

When thinking which famous people to present, we have all decided to choose singers and actors: Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez and Tom Holland. Our main criteria in selecting were our personal preferences, their recognized achievements in the worlds of music and film, but also their positive personal traits – all of them are independent, brave, hard-working and above all generous and ready to share part of their wealth with people in need.
