FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Koji je najbolji način da savladam jezik?
Najbolji način da savladate jezik je da svoje učenje bazirate najviše na govoru, pri tom ne zanemarujući slušanje, razumevanje teksta, pisanje i gramatiku. Metode koje koristimo pokrivaju sve aspekte, a Vaš profesor će akcenat, pored konverzacije kao najneophodnijeg aspekta, staviti na ono što Vama najviše odgovara. Časovi pored predavanja obuhvataju i učenje uz pomoć audio i video materijala koji prati Vaše časove, a dostupna Vam je i obilna školska biblioteka sa audio knjigama.
What is the best way to learn a language?
The best way to learn a language is to base your studying mostly on speaking but not neglecting listening, understanding of texts, writing and grammar. The methods we use cover all aspects and your professor will emphasize, besides speaking as the most important one, what suits you most. The classes, besides lectures, include learning with audio and video materials which follow your classes and a rich school library with audio books is available to you.
Da li je suviše kasno da sada počnem sa učenjem (sa 30, 40 50… godina)?
Nikada nije kasno. Ako imate dobru volju, naš stručni tim će učiniti da jezik savladate sa lakoćom i entuzijazmom. Pauza koju ste napravili u učenju jezika ili pak učenje drugih jezika ne predstavljaju prepreku, jer to je samo pasivizirano znanje, a naš je posao da ga reaktiviramo.

Is it too late to start learning now (at the age of 30, 40, 50…)?
It is never too late. If you have a strong will our expert team will help you learn the language with ease and enthusiasm. The break you made in learning the language or learning other languages does not represent an obstacle because that knowledge is passive and our job is to reactivate it.
