I have a degree in Slovene language and literature and Educational Sciences from the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. After graduation I worked for the Examination centre at the Centre for Slovene as a second and foreign Language, where I was responsible for setting, administering and marking official exams in Slovene language on different levels. After that I started working as a slovene language teacher at foreign universities. My first post was at the University of Nottingham and University College London, UK, where besides language classes, I developed a course on Slovene culture. My second post was at the University of Zagreb, Croatia, where I learnt all about differences and similarities between closely related languages, such as Slovenian and Croatian. Working at Gent University is my third post abroad. I am hoping to teach my students just how unique and special Slovene language is and of course how to use it fluently. I also teach Slovene at Université Libre de Bruxelles. Apart from my teaching I have been devoting a lot of my time for the past 10 years to developing new teaching/learning materials with my colleagues at the University of Ljubljana.
I am teaching Slovene language courses at the Slavistiek en Oost-Europakunde afdeling:
- Sloveens I (minor choice for BA2)
- Sloveens II (minor choice for BA3)
- Taal en tekstanalyse: Sloveens (minor choice for MA)
