My students’ kind words

A combination of a structured plan and personalized lessons

“What I find particularly great about our lessons is the way Lena is able to combine a structured lesson plan, while also allowing my questions to personalize each class. She gives very clear explanations for vocabulary and grammar, using the Serbian language as much as possible.

Lena is professional, friendly, and easy to talk with. I thoroughly enjoy our lessons and feel like I’ve improved a lot since we started! Hvala puno, Leno!”

John Kiappes, university researcher and teacher

Speaking Serbian language from the start

“I like the materials and find Magdalena’s presentation very clear. I like how the target language is used from the start. Even if I’m quite nervous, she is encouraging and allows me time to think and I don’t feel pressured.

At the end of every lesson, I feel like I’ve really learned something. Hvala lepo!”

Michael Liddle, language teacher and translator

If you want to learn Serbian language, this is your lady!

“I would really recommend working with Magdalena: she is very thorough, very patient and gives you enough of a safe space to talk and learn through your mistakes. I’ve regularly sent her written homework and have been impressed by the detail she goes into correcting it.

When I was recently back in Croatia speaking with friends in Croatian, I was surprised how far my spoken language and my confidence had come on working with Magdalena.

So if you want to learn Serbian or Croatian language online, this is your lady!”

Words or Rules? An experience that changed my teaching philosophy

When people start learning a new language, they often have a “grammar vs. vocabulary” dilemma. They realise that there is so much to learn, and they wonder where they should invest their time. What’s more important: the words or the rules for using those words correctly?
