Zlati Hrček on-site & online alternative language school

The Global Alternative Language School

Operating as usual


http://thezlatihrcek.com/ljubljana/ as promised, here is the golden hamster opening up in Ljubljana.
Looks nice, huh? No students allowed onsite for now, but much fun online in this new cute place full of potential! ;)


ok, so here goes, or rather: here have gone 6 years of intense work in Maribor which started in July 2013 (paperwork in December 2012) from strictly zilch on. No contacts, no students, no Slovene language knowledge from my end..

6 years later almost to the day (goodbye party on August 31 2019) the school has taught total more than 300 people.

And has nowadays actively over 160 which makes it presumably the largest language school in town.

Many factors and people made that possible:
* the zveza prijateljev mladine Maribor without which there would have been no classroom the first 3 years year to teach in.
* many great students who altruistically have passed the word around, thereby creating a very helpful word of mouth.
* last but not least: the coworkers met along the way whose energy and dedication have kept up with the school quality with ongoing flying colors: Marko BRATINA, Dusan PECANAC, Raul GUBERT, Tea PLAFTAK and our plant keeper/ cleaning lady Cvetka KOMES!

Now that I am in Ljubljana in order to keep developing and managing the school and other projects progressively, I can rest assured the ZLATI HRCEK teaching skill will be carried on in a badass way in Maribor.

Well, like Henri Fonda said in "Twelve angry men": "So long!"

Zlati Hrček – Alternative Language School


finally new webisite!!! Enjoy!!

thezlatihrcek.com 1. Za dodatno izobraževanje tujega jezika sem se odločila, ker sem imela strah govoriti v angleščini in občutek, da nič ne znam. Nad izobraževanjem v jezikovni šoli Zlati hrček sem navdušena. Šla sem na preizkusno srečanje in ostala. Začela sem sredi leta, plačujem sproti, zadovoljna s...


Cool Martina's birthday lunch behind bars at Jailhouse! Too bad Marko was sick! :) Whose birthday's next?


one of the (many now) golden hamster kids! Pino! Stronger and more confident each time!


Another no-more-beginner, happy-go-lucky English group conducted by Dušan. Challenging all rules of improvement speed!!


an additional room for the golden hamster crew! We modestly call it an empire extension..:)


Dušan keeps saying they are fitter after class than before class..obvious huh? That's how we mean business!


Real beginners making real progress thanks to Martina! :)..only at Zlati Hrček!
