Instructor Biography

Marina Petrovic, Teacher of English and Serbian

Hi there! I'm Marina Petrović , an EFL teacher and blogger from Serbia. After obtaining a diploma in English Language and Literature from the University of Novi Sad, back in 1996 my husband and I started our own foreign language school. I successfully passed the Cambridge ESOL exams of CAE, CPE, BEC Vantage, Higher, IELTS. In 2009 I was awarded LANCELOT ( LANguage Learning with Certified Live Online Teachers) scholarship and in 2010 I was IH COLT certificated (International House Certificate in Online Tutoring).

For the past six years I've been teaching online and creating language teaching sites along with digital language teaching materials. My most successful site is English for Beginners with over 90k unique monthly visitors, along with CommonEnglishPhrases, SerbianLesson and LearnSerbianBlog.

In my free time I enjoy walking and watching films with my two kids and hubby.

------------------------------

Veliki pozdrav svima! Zovem se Marina Petrović i živim i radim u Novom Sadu. Diplomirani sam profesor engleskog jezika i šesnaest godina radim u privatnoj školi engleskog, a od pre četiri godine držim časove engleskog i srpskog onlajn.

Pored položenih ESOL Cambridge CAE, CPE, BEC higher i IELTS ispita, 2009. godine sam dobila stipendiju za LANCELOT kurs (LANguage Learning with Certified Live Online Teachers), a 2010. sam upisala i uspešno završila IH COLT . (International House Certificate in Online Tutoring).

Obožavam da držim onlajn časove, da pravim digitalne materijale za časove engleskog i srpskog i sajtove za učenje jezika, od kojih su najuspešniji: EngleskiZaPocetnike, , CommonEnglishPhrases, SerbianLesson , LeWiNoW, LearnSerbianBlog.

Svake godine volontiram i pomažem kolegama u organizaciji onlajn konferencija, kao što je i Virtual-Round-Table conference, gde sam upoznala Gagan Biyani-ija jednog od CEO-a Udemy platforme koja me je oduševila jednostavnošću. Sigurna sam da će vam se kursevi koje pravim svideti i da će vam učenje jezika uz njih biti i zabavno i korisno.

Možete me kontaktirati preko LinkedIn profila, ili me pratiti preko Twittera na engleskom i na srpskom.
