My name is Milica, and I am a writer and translator. Languages, words, and sentences have been very important in my life, and I enjoy teaching what I love. I have worked as a middle school teacher in Oslo. My main subjects have been Norwegian as a mother tongue, English as a second language and social sciences. I also worked at two different language schools, where I taught Norwegian as a foreign language. Currently I work as a translator for Scandinavian languages (Norwegian, Swedish and Danish), since I have studied both Swedish and Norwegian for many years. I speak Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, Norwegian, Swedish, some German, and a little Spanish and Russian. I am passionate about languages, literature, history and culture.

Works as a:
Middle school teacher
Scandinavian languages translator
My university and personal studies in languages, literature, history and pedagogy gave me the theoretical background to understand how languages work. The 14-year-experience gave me the practical knowledge and awareness of how people learn and begin to use a second language.
My teaching approach is supporting, motivating and positive. I have high ambitions for my students, and I want them to explore the language they are learning by using it often, actively and willingly. Everyone learns differently and for different reasons, and I always accomodate the way students want to learn.
