From February to June, Lingva teacher Katarina Andrić attended The Trainer Development Course organised by the British Council and financed jointly by the participant herself and Lingva School. The course is designed for teachers who want to make transition from teacher to trainer and it comprised of seven workshops during which the participants learnt how to create and deliver effective and succesful workshops.

At the end of the course, each participant prepared a presentation followed by feedback and discussion. Katarina held a workshop titled Using Songs in ELT ( Using Songs with Teenagers). The goals of Katarina’s workshop were to identify important criteria in choosing songs and experiment with different activities connected with using songs. At the end participants gave their opinion of the workshop. They gave very positive comments stating that “it was very practical”, “versatile and useful” and that they were “looking forward to using those ideas in their classroom”. Some participants said they felt “ inspired “ and they all wished Katarina “ to keep up with the good work”.

This has been a natural step for Katarina to take in her continuing professional development. It is the policy of Lingva school within its high quality assurance plan to constantly support its teachers in their professional career development through a systematic implementation of YALS Teacher Training and Development Scheme, which includes regular mentoring, peer observation, Lingva in-house workshops, and international seminars and conferences organised by YALS, ELTA and the British Council.

We did some research on the web and found out that the black caiman lives in fresh water and is most active at night, the Indian walkingstick insect can be as much as 8 cm and the harpy eagle 86 cm long, and that the Siberian husky lives in the Arctic, in extremely cold weather, down to -75°F.

Famous People Biographies 2015

Why do we admire musicians R5, Eminem, Deadmau5, Guns N’ Roses, Zayn Malik, Beyonce, actress Sandra Bullock and basketball-player Allen Iverson? Here are some of the answers:
“I think they’re very talented and they play with their hearts. They love what they do and it’s very important.”
“I admire him because he helped so many people get on with their lives.”
“He is very unique, he wears his costume, the mouse helmet, at every performance he has and he is very humorous.”
“They are very old, but still very good.”
“He is my favourite singer and he is a great person.”
“She is very successful and she cares a lot about her fans.”
“I think it is great that she donates money to charity.”
“He is a great example of a person who grows and learns through his mistakes.”

Lingva Multimedia Projects: The Best School Trip

This time most of Lingva students presented a school trip to Novi Sad as the most memorable one. They were very impressed with a lot of new things they saw, especially The Museum of Jovan Jovanović, one of the best Serbian poets, nicknamed “the Dragon”, the Name of Mary Church, with its colourful stained-glass windows and a big clock, and the Nature Museum, with its varied collections and enormous mamoth remains.  In addition to Novi Sad, the other popular places described in this project by Jelisaveta, Mirjana, Marija, Filip, Ognjen, Aleksandar, Nikola, and Aleksa, with support from teacher Katarina Andrić, were Belgrade, Zlatibor, Vrnjačka Banja and mountains Suvobor and Rajac. As in all school trips, they had a lot of fun in the bus, making jokes, listening to music, playing games on mobile phones, and taking funny photos. In the mentioned big cities they did not forget, of course, to visit a McDonald’s restaurant, which we still do not have in Valjevo. One day in the future, when they grow up, these posters and presentations will remind them of all carefree moments they enjoyed on these trips.

19th Lingva Workshop – Enlivening Language Skills: Reading

IMG_1321 [1024x768]

Lingva in-house workshop No. 19 in the school year 2013/2014 was the first in a series of events aimed at revitalising teaching of language skills by introducing colourful media and new technologies. Most of the lesson plans were based on exploiting stories, starting from Celtic tales to comic strip legends to contemporary short stories for children and adults. All of these stories were accompanied with strong visual elements, either in the form of picture books, old paintings and photographs or flash cards. In some presentations, teachers demonstrated how to integrate reading with the skills of listening and speaking, and in others how the reading texts could be analyzed for review writng or serve as models for creative story telling and writing.
