My name is Jadranke and I am from Macedonia. When I was at school, we spoke Macedonian and (then) Serbo-Croat as official languages. At university I had lessons and read and studied in both languages to native level.
I have been working in the Macedonian school system for almost 20 years, teaching the Macedonian language and literature to a wide-range of students with varying abilities. My training involved being able to carry out this process in all of the languages I studied to degree level.
I have been living in a region of Macedonia close to the Bulgarian border for a number of years. Macedonian and Bulgarian are sister languages and I have therefore been able to learn Bulgarian to a high level and can offer it as a language for instruction.
BA Hons in SE Slavic Languages and Literature
My approach is a communicative one and I would like to share my passion for the SE Slavic languages with anyone interested in taking lessons with me. Please get in touch to set up your first class. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
First lesson with Mrs. Davitkova, she spent time assessing my language ability by asking me questions to determine my ability to answer them and comprehend what she was saying. The questions provided a good baseline for my onward studies. Fun chat!
Very great tutor! Nice and understanding. Although I had a little knowledge of common phrases, she gave me more confidence and speaking out loud. Can't wait to continue!
Speaking Bulgarian is quite difficult for my tongue, but i am happy that she supports me and pushes me in the right direction towards fluency.
