Welcome to the November issue of our Newsletter!

Get yourself a nice cup of tea, sit comfortably in your favourite reading spot and prepare to be warmed up by the dedication our contributors show in their papers. This is what awaits you:

– a report on how students and the school staff in Užice marked the European Literacy Day and the Day of European Languages and the creative energy that might inspire you to do a similar

project in your own community or school,

– a report from an ELTA representative on the 16th International INGED ELT conference in Izmir, Turkey called By Word of Mouth: Embracing Inspiring Practices and some interesting workshops

that caught our contributor’s attention,

– an overview of the types of trainings the Center for Vocational Education and Training from Montenegro (VET Center) offers for attaining and developing key skills and competencies


– a very interesting article we borrowed from our friends in Teaching English on how by acquiring language students appropriate a cultural identity and the teachers are thus social agents

who manage the cultural contexts of their classrooms.

Enjoy the reading!
