GB About

“GB” is a foreign language school founded in 1988 and has been successfully operating ever since, with a yearly increase of its number of students and expanding the number of utilized classrooms, associates and covered area in the Pozega region. The primary number of its customers are school children both in elementary and secondary schools and adults seeking knowledge of English in order to be in the contemporary business trend.

Our school was founded in 1988 as an agency for foreign languages “London”. In 1993, through an acquisition process, the school was incorporated in “Bomix” ltd, and was operating under this name for the following three years when, in 1996, it was restructured into “GB” Ltd, and eventually, in 1999 it became “GB” agency for foreign languages.

In the beginning, the school had a fruitful cooperation with the Institute for Foreign Languages in Belgrade, regarding methods and course books, and their professors held final examination tests in our school in Pozega. This enabled our students to acquire certificates of the Institute, acknowledged throughout the country as a reliable proof of language competence.

In 1994, “GB” School adopted a new method of teaching, turning to Oxford language textbooks and additional materials. We have been organizing courses for children, teenagers and adults, covering all levels of general English. In addition, the school prepares its students for Cambridge exams (FCE, CAE, CPE) as well as TOEFL and ESOL.

Since 1996, “GB” has had a successful cooperation with a private language school form Seres, Greece, in the course of which we have organized exchanges of students and have strengthened the cultural bonds of our countries. As we are considered to be one of the leading regional educational centers, our priority is therefore to maintain high level of our service, including both up-to-date teaching methods and most competent teachers, regardless of costs. Our maxim has always been quality, not quantity.

We also were a partner of Pozega Municipality in IRD-CRDA project (International relief and Development – Community Revitalization through Democratic Actions) and in Community Policing seminar for Pozega Police Managers, doing all official translations. From 2001 to 2004, “GB” was selected and appointed by Pozega Municipality and Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) to organize English language courses within the Municipal Support Programme (MSP), and was, among seven schools in seven municipalities, officially declared the best school in the region.

What “GB” does

“GB” School has been successfully teaching students for the past 32 years and during that time has become an accredited center for testing and assessments for English language exams for LCCI. Also, “GB” school offers courses in other popular languages such as German, Italian, French and Spanish. “GB” has also taken part in organizing HIPPO English language competition from its beginning and is one of the centers where this competition is being held.

“GB” presently has a total number of 200 students. This is changing number due to the fact that the number of adults fluctuate, depending on their number attending the courses. GB’s customers can be divided into two groups: schoolchildren and adults. The school children are the primary clientele of “GB”, constituting a percentage of 60%, and the adults comprise a percentage of 40%.

“GB” also regularly takes its students to England as to expand their language competence at collages specialized in this field and also takes its students to various summer and winter camps of English.

Besides language courses, our school offers all kinds of translating services, including business correspondence translations for almost all relevant companies in Pozega region ( Jasmil Ltd, Livnica PLC, PLB Zlatibor, Inmold, Carmeuse Jelen Do and many others).

Goals

At “GB” our goal is to continue the quality practice we have had so far, implementing novelties in the field of foreign language studies and gain trust in new enrollees. Our goal is to attract new customers and retain the present ones, to keep the respect the school has acquired over the years and to expand its classes into the neighboring communities and towns of Pozega and further.

Our goal in the future is to open satellite facilities and classes in surrounding area as well in Belgrade. In order to open these subsidiaries, qualified personnel is necessary.

At this time there is a deficiency in the available number of skilled foreign language teachers, especially for English, but pursuant to the number of students enrolled at the Language Department at the University of Belgrade and Kragujevac, their number will increase in the near future.
