ELTA Newsletter has been in circulation for so many years and it is a result of devoted volunteers who have worked together to help our English teachers’ voices be heard. They are the ones who edit, proofread, go through every tiny little detail and review the written material before it finally gets published.
This year we have a new team, and it is our pleasure to introduce to you the ones who will motivate you to write, share and publish your articles.
Milena Tanasijević, editor-in-chief
I am very happy to be a part of this team! I have been teaching English for 15 years, I used to work with very young and young learners, teens, young adults and adults, I tailored in-company courses. Now I teach students of IT, Management and Design related fields at Belgrade Metropolitan University, as blended and distance courses… I have been involved in teacher training, as well. I am also interested in SLA and ESP research. I look forward to reading the contributions and working with you!

Hello! It is great to be part of this international team! I have been teaching English for nearly thirty years. For the last decade, I have been working with teenagers at the School of Pharmacy and Physiotherapy in Belgrade. I have always supported the idea of CPD, so the opportunity of attending webinars nowadays makes me feel privileged (and very often short of time).

My fields of interest are: Technology enhanced learning, Web 2.0 tools, critical thinking, teaching adults and ART in ESL.
Jana Živanović, co-editor
Hi there from a passionate and enthusiastic ELT, ready to change the world (of education) for better! I’m currently teaching Integrated skills and General English at the Foreign languages department at the Military Academy, preparing military officers for missions and pilots for professional development abroad. As a PhD student, I’m also teaching English as an elective course for B2 level students at the Faculty of Philology. Interested in teaching methodology even before I enrolled the faculty, I combine it now with cognitive linguistics. Therefore, I enjoy applying different techniques and exploring which ones suit my students best, as well as sharing my findings and learning from the more experienced. Can’t wait to get to know you and read your articles!
