Hello! My name is Marija and I am from Serbia. I graduated from Philological University in Belgrade, department of Serbian literature and language and finished master's degree at the department of Serbian as a foreign language. Even before I finished my studies I had started volunteering and later working as a teacher of Serbian as a foreign language and as a coordinator of the department at the Institute for Foreign languages in Belgrade. Currently I work as a Serbian lecturer at the department of Serbian language and culture at Guangdong University of foreign studies in Guangzhou, China. I was a private tutor, I held online lessons, I attended many conferences about teaching a foreign language. Threfore, I have a lot of experience in teaching Serbian language to all levels and to all nationalities. Even if we cannot communicate in the same language, I have o problems to teach Serbian. I start immediately with Serbian step by step, using TPR and methods understandable to my students. Speaking and practice I find the most important in studying a language so I do my best to give the student enough space and time to express themselves. Teaching is my passion and I am sincerely looking forward to meeting many of you!
