Each language has its own logic and translating grammar/vocabulary structures/syntax into another just simply doesn't work. Which is why I try to explain English through English and make my students use English while learning it.

A wonderful film full of magic and great music. I suggest 9+ age, younger kids might get intimidated by some scenes and puppets...

I met David Bowie here for the 1st time so this is a great opportunity to introduce a wonderful musician to your kids 😉.

This school year has been challenging in some many ways. Which is why I am bursting with pride thanking my 5️⃣0️⃣ students and their parents❗
Some shoes are missing in the photos (chatty teacher forgot to take a photo 😁), some shoes never set foot in our classroom because online world works differently, doesn't it? 😉😃

I am so grateful for everything this year brought along and am looking forward to seeing you in September!

She was 6 when I started teaching her. She's 19 today, finishing @prvagimnazijamaribor and off to a new chapter in life. I saw her (together with @grgurevic_vitja, sadly missing today 😞) literally grow up in front of my eyes. 👀 ⌚

Moments like this when I let go students who've spent their entire primary and secondary school education with me, really fill me with pride and joy, yet they also leave a pinch of sadness.

And because she knows me she got me a selection of poems by W. B. Yeats. Not a farewell gift, just a thank you one. 😍🙏🎁

Needless to say I teared up.. 😢
Bon voyage my dear Lana Simončič! Where ever life takes you, stay true to yourself, connected to the 🐺 inside you. And you'll do just fine, I'm sure of that. 💜💜💜

Today I was able to do the looong planned workshop!!! 😃🙆‍♀️💪

1️⃣ out of 2️⃣✔️✔️✔️

During the lockdown, after we'd been back for real and had to do a couple of more weeks online, I just couldn't put these little munchinks back on screen. So I decided to do things bit differently.

Since we recently had to say goodbye to a wonderful @officialericcarle and we were talking about colours and fruit a while ago, what better way to do this than with The Very Hungry 🐛 🤩😍🤩.

This was so much fun! Apart from vocabulary we revised colours, counting, covered sizes, did some fine motorical skills, sequenced the story... And had some yummy apples and raisins... amd FUN!

When Adoption Means Changing a Child's Birth Language

Kids and languages

I still very often come across parents who doubt of exposing their child to another language. I often meet those who don't believe in early language acquisition.

Children up to the age of 3 have astonishing abilities of learning languages. Early childhood is a time of tremendous brain development. 🧠💪

This personal experience describes beautifully how easily it can be done. But it takes diligence and persistence.

And.... It must be FUN! Which is why fun is a key element at #spelasenglish.

Learning through play

My Group 3

We're talking about sport at the moment and there's quite some vocabulary to learn. This can be done in an old-fashined way with worksheets and boring revising...

Na-ah! Not with Spela's English! We learn and have fun while doing so. This fishing activity's purpose was to get to know sport collocations while practicing Present Simple question form. Intuitive grammar.

Check out the video and let me know if YOU'd fancy such approach ;-).

LEARNING SHOULD BE FUN!

This is my group of 4 yo revising opposites.

We hadn't been able to have lessons for two weeks and were so happy to be back again yesterday!
Lessons are all about fun! It's so simple to learn while having fun.

Easy, like a child's play. LITERALLY!

According to Global Gender Gaps Index 2018, at this pace it will take us another 108 years to finally close the gender gap.

Some 2 weeks ago I attended this amazing 2 day workshop by wonderful Julian Harel on self-expression techniques for online (and real time) teaching.

We went through technical bits and pieces (camera, light, sound, internet, background...) to an actual teaching approach. For this, each one of us had to prepare a 2-3 min piece on something we know by heart and are used to teaching. And we worked on this through both days, tried various techniques and had lots of laughs.

The print screen below was taken on Day 2 in the beginning, while Sofia, Julian and I were waiting for other member to join in.

It is great to do this time to time, have your fellow teachers' feedback on your teaching approach ❤️ .

P.S.: I promised a testimonial to Julian and Sofia said it must be a "6 o'clock news" thing. Should I share it with you guys? 😉

My sweet students

This was taken way back in 2014. I know it doesn't sound much for some of us but for these two it's a THIRD of their lives! These two, Lana Simončič and Vitja Grgurevič, have been with me for over a decade now. And what fun times we've had...

Every end of a school year these two set up a performance with a sweet note (this time it was a whole album of sweet notes!) for me. Our relationship has always been on friendship basis because I know how important it is that kids feel relaxed while they learn!!!

And of course fooling and goofing around has never been a problem for me. Neither has setting the boundaries. ;-) And when you manage to create such atmosphere in your lessons, you genuinely look forward to each lesson to come.

Thanks guys for being you! Love you!
