About me - English


My name is Katerina and I am from Bulgaria. As a young and enthusiastic educator, one of the ways I like to motivate and inspire my students is to show them how "rich" they can be by knowing a language and how unlimited their world can become if they "dive" in the world of languages.

"The limits of my language mean the limits of my world." - a quote I use to inspire my students and to show them what wonders a new language can do. My love for travel has led me to places which showed me that languages are not just about communication but an opportunity to love the world for its uniqueness and diversity.

Qualifications & Experience

I have graduated Applied Linguistics (English and Chinese).

My experience as a teacher has met me with people not only from different age groups (from children in kindergarten to adults) but also from different nationalities. This showed me in what way people from different nationalities perceive and learn a language. And this is just amazingly fascinating. And this clash of uniqueness in every language creates the magic of learning and the interest of my students.

Teaching Approach

I try to make my lessons, not just a regular lessons. My goal is to turn the lessons into a cultural-linguistic adventure, full of many wonderful emotions and a lot of fun. That is why a personalized approach and getting acquainted with my students' personalities are natural and imperceptible processes during my lessons.

I believe that a person can achieve absolutely everything they want if they are motivated and does not give up on their goal.

About me - Bulgarian


Казвам се Катерина и съм от България! Като млад и ентусиазиран преподавател един от начините ми, по който обичам да мотивирам и вдъхновявам учениците си е да им покажа колко "богати" могат да станат знаейки език и колко безграничен може да стане собственият им свят ако се гмурнат в света на езиците. "Границите на езика ми определят границите на света ми." - цитат, който обичам да повтарям и който върши чудеса при учениците ми. Любовта ми към пътуването ме отведе до места, които ми показаха, че езикът не е просто за комункация, а възможност да обикнеш света заради неговата уникалност и пъстрота.

Qualifications & Experience

Завършила съм Приложна лингвистика (английски език и китайски език). Опитът ми като учител ме срещна с хора не само от различни възрастови групи (от деца в детскта градина до възрастни), но и от различни националности. Това ми показа, колко интересно и по какъв начин хората от различни националости възприемат и учат един език. И този сблъсък на уникалността при всек език поражда магията на ученето и интереса на учениците.

Teaching Approach

Старая се уроците ми да не са просто уроци. Целта ми е да превърна часовете в едно културно-езиково приключение, изпълненео с много забавления и емоции. За това персонализирания подход и опознаването на учениците ми е естесвен и неусетен процес в моите часове. Вярвам, че човек може да постигна абсолютно всичко, което пожелае ако е мотивиран и не се отказва от целта си.
