Pancevo, December 28, 2011 – Prodirekt and its communication network Verbalisti, together with the language school Academia, threw a New Year party to remember in the famous club Coupe on Tuesday. More than 150 guests enjoyed the entertaining program, which included the performance of the best Serbian stand-up comedians.
Jasmina Saric, Prodirekt’s Director of Educational Programs, briefly looked back at the most significant achievements of the language network Verbalisti, part of Prodirekt’s business group. Prodirekt has been the first company in Southeast Europe to be awarded the accreditation for the language education travel and Work-and-Travel program abroad by the two most important European associations – the EnglishUK and German ICEF. Ms. Saric pointed out that the language network Verbalisti, which enjoyed the support of over 120 foreign language teachers, grew into 11,000 member community. The two foreign language blogs, in Serbian and Macedonian, were promoted in 2011 (with 430 followers), and the Verbalisti YouTube channel had almost 100,000 video views in less than a year.
As the night drew to its end, there was a Christmas Bingo organized with Verbalisti’s partners, film distribution companies Taramount and Cinefest. The main prize – a free English language course went to Doroteja Urosev from Pancevo.
