About: Visnja Bojovic

I hold a master’s degree in Classical Philology from the University of Belgrade, where I specialized in ancient Greek drama and its social influence. Due to my great passion for languages, I have been teaching them for more than five years now. I teach business English in a Spanish branch of a company called Learnlight, and I am a private tutor of Latin and ancient Greek. As curious and hungry for knowledge as I am, I spend my free time reading, traveling, and learning languages.
