After the Grammar school I wanted to attend an university. I sent three application forms; to Bratislava, Banska Bystrica and Presov. Finally I chose the Matej Bel University in Banska Bystrica. I studied German and literature and technical education.
After my graduation I have started teaching at the elementary school in Svit. As a teacher I have to study the whole my life.
During my occupation I have started studying at the Komensky University in Bratislava. I had to write rigorous work and do orals for the lower doctorate.
After this study I said that I would never more learn something. But now I study English and later I will learn French or Spanish.
I think that nowadays more and more people need further education. In our state we have a lot of unemployed people and when these people want to become a work, they have to be better as the other people.
Many people want to move on in their work so they musn`t stagnate. They always have to become new information and skills.
Distance courses are for these people very helpful.
I have started with English learning on Humboldt. It is a school like the Open University in Great Britain. The Open University is dedicated to distance learning. You can study there many courses, not only languages. You can start your course when you want and the university has no upper age limit.
Nearly all students in Humboldt are studying part-time. Many students are in full-time employment.
Nowadays many employers sponsored their employees for their studies.
Most Humboldt courses are available throughout Europe.
The Open University and Humboldt`s style of teaching is called supported open learning. Open learning means that you will be learning in your own time by reading course material, working on course activities, writing assignments and perhaps working with other students. Supported means support from a tutor and the student services staff.
Some courses include a residential or day school. These are held at various times and locations.
By your study at Humboldt you will become a tutor. Your tutor will support your progress throughout the course. The tutor will be an expert in the subject and appreciates what it is like to study at a distance.
You need to be active in asking for help from your tutor – they won`t necessarily know just when you need it. Your tutor will support you by:
· Correspondence tuition. Your tutor will mark your course assignments and give you written back.
· For many courses, your tutor will arrange tutorial support for a small group of students. This support may be face to face or online.
· Individual assistance in writing or by e-mail. Your tutor will explain when and how to make contact so do get in touch when you need help.
Humboldt uses a variety of media to help its students learn. For example:
· printed course materials
· set books
· audio cassettes
· web site etc.
All the printed materials, and many others, are yours to keep – use them in the way that suits you best. You`ll get the most benefit if you study actively, so it`s good practise to treat printed course materials as workbooks: write notes on them, highlight sections, underline key points, make notes on the pages etc.
After the course you receive a certificate of the successfully end of your course. In some courses you have to do some examinations at the end of the course.
If you find the thought of an examination a bit daunting, then don`t let it put you off. Only a very few people actually enjoy examinations but most students find that the process of revising for the examination helps to pull together the material they have learned during the course. There is also a great sense of achievement when you receive your final marks and realize that you have successfully passed a demanding academic course.
