“We have three children, ages 13, 10, and 8, who are taking online Serbian lessons with Nataša Dinić. Since they started lessons, we are noticing improvement in their ability to read, speak and understand Serbian. They tell us they enjoy their lessons and would like to continue with them.
We contacted Nataša because we discovered the textbook she co-authored for children whose primary language is English. We had a discussion with her about our goals and requirements: someone who had experience working with younger students; formal qualifications and training; and experience creating tailored lesson plans (including homework assignments) within the framework of a curriculum.
Nataša met with each of them and came up with a program of study for each student. This was not a straightforward task as our children have very different levels of comfort with the Serbian language. We are particularly impressed with the way she connects pedagogical goals to the interests of the student. For example, there was a lesson where our youngest discussed LEGO projects and space, the middle child discussed music, while the eldest learned about historical events and Serbian culture.
We would recommend Nataša to anyone looking to improve their Serbian and increase their knowledge of Serbia, its society and culture.” – Aleksandar, Bojana, Milana, Jovana and Nemanja Živanović, Arlington, Massachusetts, USA
