Jasenka Čengić:  From Exposure to Awareness: Capitalizing on Language Learners' Individual Differences to Create a Thriving Classroom Environment


Jasenka Čengić is a Research and Teaching Assistant at the Department of English, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Zagreb. She teaches a course on TEFL and organizes MA students' teaching practice. She is a PhD candidate in the Foreign Language Education Doctoral Program at the University of Zagreb. Prior to becoming a researcher, she worked as a language teacher in both primary and secondary school as well as a university ESP lecturer. Her research interests include individual differences in learning English and other languages as well as in teacher education. She has published her work in various international publications.


In this plenary I will investigate both extra- and intra-learner factors and discuss their importance for the effectiveness of different approaches to teaching. Starting from theoretical concepts I will focus on exposure and metalinguistic awareness to discuss practical ways in which teachers can capitalize on what learners bring to the language classroom. Extending the practical aspects of the learner-centered classroom to specific instructional approaches, I will also include examples from task-based language teaching, an approach to teaching focusing on authentic language and achieving communication through task completion.

Hupe Day

Dear HUPE members,

your favourite teacher association needs your attention and help!

As you probably know, the HUPE association is run in two different ways: one is through HUPE BRANCHES (and you are all member of one of them) and the other is through HUPE EXECUTIVE BOARD.

Members of the board are chosen anew every two years. This means that soon we will be having HUPE elections.

Obviously, before each election there must be a time when candidates who wish to join the board apply and present themselves to all the members.

And this is where all of you come in: if you are a positive thinker who loves HUPE and doesn’t mind a bit of volunteering, few fun meetings and a lot of cooperation and sense of unity, then you should consider applying for one of the positions in the HUPE Executive Board.

See you soon,

7 positions:
  • HUPE PRESIDENT – runs the association, communicates with all other board members and Branch presidents, compiles the conference programme, opens and closes the conference
  • HUPE VICE PRESIDENT – helps the president with all that is necessary, communicates with the branches, compiles the conference schedule and the booklet, communicates with partner associations when needed
  • HUPE INTERNATIONAL COORDINATOR – makes sure that all communication between HUPE and all the other teacher associations is timely and performed adequately, sends notifications about the upcoming partner conferences
  • HUPE SECRETARY – keeps a record of all our meetings (live or online), compiles contracts for our speakers and presenters, makes sure all the paperwork is kept in order
  • HUPE TREASURER – deals with money, issues invoice, communicates with our bookkeeper
  • HUPE NEWSLETTER EDITOR – edits our E-Zine and our HUPE Newsletter, organizes various competitions for our members and their students
  • HUPE PUBLIC RELATIONS – makes sure all-important info regarding HUPE can be found on our website and Facebook page
