Foreign language institute is the oldest foreign language teaching institution in Serbia and the region. The Institute was founded in 1952 and officially began work in 1953.
Today we organize numerous activities in our Institute, such as: foreign language lessons for adults and Serbian for foreigners, extracurricular foreign language lessons for school and preschool aged children, enabling work staff for modern language teaching, estimating the proficiency levels in various foreign languages, research in applied linguistics and teaching methods and projects in those fields, textbooks and teaching materials, recording and copying audio and video materials.
The methods we use at our Institute comes as a direct results of many years of work by our experts. They are based on our own experience in foreign language teaching as well as relevant discoveries in the field of glottodidactics (theory of teaching) and applied linguistics in the broader sense.
We have developed specific teaching methods for adults and children of all levels of knowledge. Levels are carefully estimated according to the age and prior knowledge of the candidate and then supported with proper teaching materials: textbooks, exercise books, audio materials and teaching manuals.
Another important activity of our Institute also involves textbook, dictionary and CD publication. We have so far published around 670 titles in a total amount of 1 million copies.
During our years of work and tradition we have had and continue to have successful cooperation with eminent national and international companies and institutions. Our list of references includes many of our users with whom we have cooperated for years.
Around 30,000 foreign citizens have passed through our institute and studied Serbian.
We are especially proud of our workshops and classes such as our English drama class and musical workshops in various languages, as well as our cooperation with various preschool institutions, both private and state.
