Katarina Hagovska is an enthusiastic Helen Doron English teacher, as well as the proud mother of 3 Helen Doron students! The family lives in Roznava, which is a small town in Slovakia close to the Hungarian border, so the majority of the town’s population is bilingual. ” I’ve been happily married for ten years and I have three wonderful children, one girl and two boys who speak Slovak and Hungarian fluently— and of course they are Helen Doron students who love learning English!”

Katarina majored in English and German language and literature in university and started her career as a teacher at the secondary grammar school in Roznava. Similar to many other Helen Doron teachers and franchisees, she came across Helen Doron while looking for a way to teach her own child English. “My daughter was 3 when I decided to start teaching her English, but didn’t know how. I was searching the internet in order to buy some books or CDs, when I came along Helen Doron and saw demo lessons being offered. I liked it immediately, but the closest Helen Doron centre was more than an hour’s drive, so I decided to become a Helen Doron teacher myself and teach my own children. At that time I didn’t know how much I would enjoy teaching with the Helen Doron method and how it would change my life. “

Five years later, Katarina teaches students from ages 2-3 all the way up to the Teen Talent courses for adolescents. Looking back on her experience teaching traditionally at a public school, she compared the two experiences and describes why she prefers Helen Doron. “I had a chance to experience teaching at a secondary grammar school and I really appreciate the work of my colleagues there, as they are under constant pressure trying to do their best in the given conditions. Teaching for Helen Doron gave me great freedom and unburdened me from such unpleasant and time-consuming tasks such as: grading, regular testing and stressful preparations for classes.

Teaching became my hobby and I look forward to each class, because it is always a challenge of my knowledge and creativity, of my ability to get children interested and involved in what we are learning. Helen Doron teachers have passion and love for English and children.

To her, it is obvious that the Helen Doron methodology is the right choice. From the first demo lesson on, the students and the parents are aware of the differences between classical English courses and Helen Doron English. Small groups, friendly environment, sitting in a circle on the carpet, a lot of movement, singing, arts and crafts, positive reinforcement and a lot of fun in class, as well as regular home hearing of the CDs make the Helen Doron methodology unique. The course materials are also very attractive and interactive, thanks to the special applications. However, in my opinion it is also the personality of the teacher that makes the courses different from all other courses. The teacher who is ready to crawl, make animal sounds and get wet and dirty if needed, is ready to have fun being a Helen Doron teacher!”

Katarina is very happy in her chosen career as a Helen Doron teacher, and is grateful for the way her life is enhanced being part of the Helen Doron family. “Thank you that I have a job that makes me feel happy and fulfilled. Thank you for the chance to teach the way that works for all children effectively. Thank you for all the children who enjoy learning English the right way. Thank you for the parents who are satisfied with the wonderful results of Helen Doron English. Just…thank you!”


卡特琳娜·哈格夫斯卡是一位充满热情的海伦多兰英语教师,她还是三名海伦多兰学生的妈妈!卡特琳娜一家住在罗兹那瓦,这是斯洛伐克的一座小镇,靠近与匈牙利接壤的边境,所以这个地方的大多数人都会讲两种语言。“我结婚10年了,婚姻很幸福,有三个好孩子,一个女孩,两个男孩,他们可以流利地讲斯洛伐克语和匈牙利语,当然,他们还是热爱学习英语的海伦多兰学生!”

卡特琳娜在大学里的专业是英、德语言和文学,毕业后在罗兹那瓦的文法中学开始了教师生涯。与许多其他海伦多兰教师和加盟商相似的是,她是在寻找自己的儿童英语教学方法的时候遇见了海伦多兰。“在我女儿三岁的时候,我决定开始教她学习英语,但我不知道要怎样教,我在互联网上寻找,想买一些书或者CD,这个时候我看到了海伦多兰以及他们提供的课程演示。我立刻就喜欢上了海伦多兰,但离最近的海伦多兰中心也要1个小时的车程,于是我决定自己成为一名海伦多兰教师并教自己的孩子。那个时候我还不知道我会有多么喜欢用海伦多兰教学法教课,也不知道它会怎样改变我的生活。”

五年之后,卡特琳娜教授的学生2-3一直到青少年阶段的“Teen Talent。回首看自己在公立学校的传统教学经历,她对两种经历进行了比较并描述了自己青睐海伦多兰的原因。“我有机会在文法中学里体验教学,而且我真的很感激我的同事在那里所做的工作,因为他们要在既定环境里顶着持续的压力做到最好。海伦多兰给了我极大的教学自由,而且不会给我布置那些让人感到不悦且耗费时间的任务,比如打分、定期测验和充满压力的备课等等。

教课已经成为了我的爱好而且我对每节课都充满了期待,因为教课始终挑战着我的知识和创造力,挑战着我让孩子对所学的东西有兴趣并愿意投入的能力。海伦多兰的教师对英语和孩子充满激情和热爱。”

对她来说,海伦多兰教学法显然是一个正确的选择。“从第一个课程演示开始,学生和父母就清楚传统英语课程和海伦多兰英语之间的差别,学习小组、友好的环境、在地毯上围坐成一圈、大量的动作、歌唱、艺术和工艺、积极的强化、充满乐趣的课堂以及定期在家听CD,使得海伦多兰教学法独一无二。由于特殊应用,课程材料同样具有吸引力且能够引起互动。然而,我认为教师的品格也是使海伦多兰课程与其他课程不同的原因之一,那些做好准备在需要的时候去爬行、模仿动物叫声以及变得又湿又脏的老师,已经准备好成为一名充满乐趣的海伦多兰教师了!”

卡特琳娜对于成为一名海伦多兰教师的职业选择非常满意,同时也很感激作为海伦多兰大家庭的一份子让自己的生活得到了改善。“感谢我有一份让自己快乐和有成就感的工作,感谢我有机会用有效的方法教所有孩子学好英语,感谢所有用正确的方法享受英语学习的孩子,感谢对海伦多兰英语的美妙成果感到满意的父母,谢谢!”
