About me


My name is Sandra Vida. I teach secondary school students in Lendava, Slovenia. This website started as a part of my MA dissertation in TESOL (EdTech) at the University of Manchester and my goal is to keep it growing regularly. I am an active board member of IATEFL Slovenia, with a special passion for organizing conferences and other events. I also regularly present at conferences, especially on the subject of educational technology, songs for EFL and creative tasks.

I have a passion for teaching, learning and music so the most obvious thing for me is to try to combine the three. This is my attempt in getting some order in the materials I have collected during the years and giving them a new, modern look.

In what is left of my free time, I read and cycle.

To contact me, you can send me an email to sandra.vida@teacher.si.

  1. Dear Sandra

    I attendet your workshop at IATEFL and loved it. I have searching your website ever since and am in awe of all your good ideas! I look forward to trying some out in May when my students are back. A big big thank you for making my life easier and my lessons more fun by sharing your ideas.

    Best wishes

  2. I joined your workshop at IATEFL this year on April 2nd in Horragate. I enjoyed it very much and got inspired from your lesson there. As an English teacher who uses songs in my lesson a lot I really learnt from you a lot.
