My name is Ivana Lazic. I graduated from the Faculty of Philology in Belgrade, the English language and literature department. I’ve been working in Lingva since 2011, when I also became a member of ELTA ( English Language Teachers Association ). Additionally, I have one year working experience in the secondary economic school in Valjevo.
As an English teacher, I put my effort predominantly in increasing the learning motivation of students by offering attractive activities and roleplaying real-life situations in classes, encouraging them to use their knowledge actively, supporting weaker ones, simplifying grammar points, and developing a relaxing approach to learning. Furthermore, I try to develop friendly relationships among students, to make them lend a helping hand to each other unselfishly.
When it comes to Lingva, it’s an excellent place for realising all my teaching ideas with its modernly-equipped classrooms, positive working atmosphere based on a very good organisation, willing to help colleagues, and constant support of the director of studies, together with her various useful pieces of advice for teaching strategy. A constant professional development is included and of a great importance.
