Welcome to NatiEnglish!
Hi, I'm Natalia Rekic Muci, an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teacher since 2004, a mother of two wonderful daughters and an explorer of new teaching experiences. During these years in school, I adopted many good methods, took part in different projects, prepared students for competitions, even won several first places at drama festivals.
The name, NatiEnglish comes from my nickname Nati.
The teaching of my daughters opens up new possibilities. My purpose is to help them reach near native-English speaking level, to use English as a tool to communicate and cooperate with others and to discover the world surrounding them. This is what prepares them to use English learning as a 21st-century skill.
