profesorka engleskog, vlasnica i Direktorka Centra SPELL

Running the Centre and being the Manager and a teacher all entail a lot of responsibilities and personal characteristics necessary for working successfully. Having worked in different areas, I have acquired and improved skills which are, in my opinion, a must for a teacher. A good teacher is a good listener, assessor, resource, organiser, facilitator, counsellor, lively, patient, motivational and motivated, fond of different cultures, creative, full of enthusiasm, flexible, open-minded, has a professional approach, gets the best out of others, thinks and reacts fast. These are all the aspects that I am striving for.

Pravo je zadovoljstvo raditi i biti okružen ljudima koji rade svoj posao sa entuzijazmom i đacima koji su ovde zbog želje za usavrsavanjem. Godine nisu bitne jer svi ovde imaju isti cilj: učiti i družiti se u prijatnom okruženju. Drago mi je da sam i ja deo ove velike porodice, jer sam radeći ovde upoznala divne ljude, bila svedok mnogih lepih događanja i naravno učila 🙂

Working as a teacher for so many years made me realise that being a teacher is something I really enjoy doing. By teaching other people and sharing my knowledge I also learn. I learn about people, their needs, feelings, interests. I learn how to be a better teacher, how to improve myself in many different aspects. Teaching and learning is a whole life process.

Being a teacher of a foreign language and having the opportunity to deal with various cultures made me realize that teaching/learning process should primarily be fun.
As Tom Ford says ‘’When you are having fun and creating something you love, it shows in the product.’’ Otherwise, teachers seem to be unapproachable and students feel like some heavy load is put on their back and there is no possibility to relax and enjoy. Therefore, I think we should keep it simple. A good teacher should be relaxed, pleasant and optimistic. A good teacher should listen carefully, react spontaneously and be ready to encourage students all the time. A good teacher should also ‘’think out of the box’’ and put themselves in their students’ shoes. A good teacher should be analytical and ready to face challenges. And, if you are an English teacher or a teacher of another foreign language, the situation is even more interesting both for you and for your students. You have the opportunity to teach not only a foreign language but also to make a completely different way of living, perception and culture more approachable to people in your classroom. This is an amazing opportunity and stunning experience. That is why I love teaching.

I do believe that ‘we teach who we are’ and that ‘the role of a teacher is to guide and inspire’. That is why each profession related to teaching is a special one. You cannot do it without putting yourself out there. You address different personalities in your work, you become part of different people’s lives – it makes you so much responsible.

In my opinion, the most important skill in the ELT business is being able to adapt to every single class/situation/environment and do your best there. I have had hundreds of trainees of different ages, nationalities, backgrounds so far. And I was supposed to instruct, teach or train them in different skills related to English language.

What I have always done is concentrating on their needs (doing needs analyses), their personal profiles, their learning styles, their strengths and weaknesses in order to make learning easier, more enjoyable, and more effective.

Teaching a foreign language is a challenging job. What I have learned in my career so far is that I have to adapt to my students’ needs, their interests and strivings. That every student is different and that each of them needs a different approach. That if you want to be a good teacher you must inspire and motivate your students, you must be willing to work, be patient, open and flexible. In that way the success of your students in mastering some aspects of a foreign language is even more rewarding.

profesorka nemačkog jezika

Često su me pitali zašto sam završila baš nemački jezik i književnost. Moj odgovor je uvek bio isti: U školi sam važila za dete talentovano za jezike i strani jezici su mi uvek bili jača strana. Sada bih želela da priznam: U jednom momentu, dok sam još išla u gimnaziju, govorila sam francuski bolje nego nemački. Uprkos tome, odlučila sam se za germanistiku. Nisam se pokajala zbog ove odluke. Ranije ljudi nisu mogli tako lako da razumeju zašto bi neko želeo da uči nemački, a sada je situacija potpuno drugačija. Imamo sve više polaznika/ polaznica i sve više ljudi iz Srbije ima ili planira saradnju sa firmama iz nemačkog govornog područja. Mnogi lekari, inženjeri i stručni radnici su pohađali kurs kod nas, u školi jezika „Spell“ i uspešno završili. Za mene je najvažnije da polaznici vežbaju sve veštine podjednako i da se već na nivou A1 mogu sporazumevati. Smatram naročito važnim da se i ja zabavljam dok predajem i da mogu da pratim napredak svakog učenika pojedinačno, da uvek znam na čemu on ili ona treba još da radi i koji cilj imaju. U nastavi koristim često materijale sa interneta, jutjub videe, časopise itd, da bih jasno pokazala da je jezik živ i da nemački postoji i izvan udžbenika.

profesor italijanskog jezika

Ljubav prema italijanskom jeziku nastala u vreme gimnazijskog školovanja dodatno se razvila na studijama na Filološkom fakultetu i posle diplomiranja tokom karijere profesora u niškim gimnazijama i školama koja je uvek za cilj imala aktivno i intenzivno širenje jezika i kulture jedne divne mediteranske zemlje koju mnogi doživljavaju bliskom često i pre nego što je zaista upoznaju. A kada je stvarno upoznaju obično im se dopadne još više. Brojna prijateljstva, putovanja, poslovni odnosi i učešća u međunarodnim projektima omogućili su mi da na jedan lični i direktan način upoznam Italiju i svakodnevni život njenih građana tako da se u nastavi trudim da polaznicima kurseva prenesem ta svoja znanja i utiske i da im približim jezik koji vole i Italiju onakvu kakva jeste. Polaznici kurseva italijanskog jezika u školi SPELL dobijaju mogućnost da u malim grupama uz moderna nastavna sredstva i multimedijalne sadržaje usvoje i aktivno primene znanja italijanskog jezika od početnih do viših nivoa.

BENVENUTI NEL MONDO DELLA LINGUA ITALIANA!

“Čudni su putevi Gospodnji.” Da mi je neko, pre mog odlaska na Kipar, rekao da ću ovako da naučim jezik i da ću njime da se bavim, rekla bih da bih verovatno pre odletela na Mesec. Grčki jezik i ja smo se spojili i zavoleli na jedan jedinstven način. On mi je otvorio nove vidike i pomogao mi da kroz njega upoznam jednu kulturu i jedan narod. Pomogao mi je da razumem pojmove koje sam svakodnevno susretala u svom jeziku, a imaju koren u grčkom jeziku. Pomogao mi je shvatim čime najviše volim da se bavim u životu. Kroz predavanje grčkog jezika, ja ne prenosim samo gramatička pravila, nego i ljubav prema jeziku i ljudima koji me okružuju. To je ono što zaista osećam dok sam na nastavi.
