The Bash Tchelik Project

This article introduces the Bash Tchelik and Other Serbian Fairy Tales page, the Oxford University Press competition-winning project. It was completed by secondary school students guided and supervised by their English teacher, Anja Prentić. The fact that it won first prize demonstrates its high potential as a learning and teaching material and shows the broader community’s appreciation for it. It explains the preparation of the page and provides ideas for teachers to use as teaching material. It also offers some suggestions for variations of activities that can be done in non-Serbian environments. Finally, the author comments on the project’s benefits in learning English and its potential contribution to the language teaching methodology.
