is an oasis of excellence and a haven for linguistic connoisseurs and untiring explorers of the land of knowledge.
years of experience
I teach because as a full-time translator I would miss working with people; I translate because it forces me to keep pushing the boundaries of my knowledge.
I believe in dynamic, practical, tailor-made courses that will upgrade your language skills and help you overcome that 'fear of speaking' or that 'I will never learn that' belief that is long overdue.
My translation clients often say that have found what they have been looking for, their 'Ithaca': a translator who delivers timely, accurate and linguistically flawless translations of legal, technical or general texts and official documents.
And what do I do with the energy and time left after all the teaching and translations? I conduct symbolic wedding ceremonies and vow renewals and act as interpreter at wedding events.
I have been working with Darja for over four years now and have always found her to be exceptionally professional. She is reliable, has very high standards, and has a great eye for detail. It is a pleasure to work with her!
I really enjoyed business English classes with Darja. Her enthusiasm is contagious. She has helped me to improve my language skills and boost my confidence. I warmly recommend her to everyone who wants to learn English while having a good time.
Darja is a very positive, energetic and knowledgeable English teacher. She is able to understand the needs of every student on any knowledge level. Her professional attitude is motivating and delivers great results. Darja is always prepared and structured as a professional, but at the same time warm, understandable and flexible as a person. She inspired me for self-learning and was willing to help and give advice also after the course. She helps me and my colleagues with professional translations as well. I enjoyed lessons with her very much.
I had the privilege that I was able to take the opportunity of individual learning of the English language. Mrs. Darja Pretnar was my teacher. Breadth of knowledge and the specifics of selected topics convinced me that I chose right.
I attended a "financial english" class that Darja held and am very satisfied with the results. Darja is very professional and her teaching methods are very "fresh" and interesting.
Darja has all the tools it takes to be an effective translator. She's detail-oriented, determined to get the text right, willing to take suggestions about style, and extremely knowledgeable about grammar. I've worked with many translators, and Darja's work is second to none. I recommend her without reservation.
