  • Hi everyone. It's a great honor for me to be a member of the best group of the most interesting teachers. I'm Violeta from Moldova. I teach English in Middle School and High School. I love involving students in more than textbook work. To me, English is the tool for discovering the world, so I want my students learn how to use it better.

Ebru Özçelik, Turkey

Hello my beloved partners, I consider myself so lucky to be a part of this project. I have been teaching English for five years in secondary school in Bolu, Turkey, and this will be my third e-twinning project. We were partners in English Cafe project with Svitlana. My biggest passion is to travel all around the world as a hobby🌍 and I love teaching English. I believe that bookish education is not enough for our students to be fully developed in this age. So this kind of projects will definitely be supportive for formal education. Moreover, thanks to this lovely project, my students will have a chance to improve their English skills😋Wish you all success and joy with this project🤗🙋♀️
