New interactive exercises at Lingva English Cafe: News Verb Forms

Lingva B2.a students took it very seriously when told to do the English multimedia project called News Verb Forms. They were first instructed to read the latest news stories on various topics on the website https://www.wikinews.org/, and summarize them orally for their classmates. The second step of the assignment involved creating verb form gap-fill exercises using the interactive Hot Potatoes authoring tools, and the final one was to do their classmates’ exercises, practicing use of verb forms both in the stage of creating as well as in that of doing the exercises. Although at first the teacher thought that students would not like to do more than one additional peer-created exercise, Sofija Belušević, Teodora Beljić, Iva Obućina, Jelena Perić, Filip Petrović, Kalina Petrovic, Uroš Uverić, pleasantly suprised her by asking to do all five exercises; what is more, the fast finishers even did some of the similar last year’s activities done by former Lingva students.

New Multimedia Presentations by Gorenje Students in the 10th cycle of English Courses

As in the previous years, a large number of higher-level course students from Gorenje made a special effort in their English language learning by taking part in multimedia projects. They created slide presentations on various business and technical topics, held them before colleagues in their groups, and finally took part in the assessment and follow-up discussion. In this way they additionally developed all language skills and enhanced their communicative skills and confidence about public speaking. Here are some of their presentations which have been published on our web site www.lingva.com/cafe :

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.

Lingva Inhouse Workshop No. 27: Lingva’s Teaching Sparklets 3

On 24 March 2018, Lingva teachers attended the 27th Inhouse Worskhop “Lingva’s Teaching Sparklets 3“. The presenters were Katarina Mirković, German language teacher and Ivana Lazić, English language teacher, who held the following workshops:

· Deutch mal anders (German in Another Way) by Katarina Mirković

Both teachers meticulously prepared their workshops and demonstrated a large number of activities for young learners at A1 and A2 levels, including integration of multimedia and educational LEGO® activities. They also stressed the importance of diversity and TPR in work with children as motivationa boosters leading to better language learning results.
