Sažetak
The present volume is a collection of papers dedicated to Professor Elvira Petrović on the occasion of her 70th birthday. If we take the first letters of the four words in the title give an established acronym – TEFL, standing for Teaching English as a Foreign Language – an activity that Professor Petrović has been engaged in at many levels. She has been concerned with Teaching English as a Foreign Language to all ages. She has done research on TEFL at the levels of both primary and secondary school. In fact, she pioneered research on early learning of foreign languages. But she has also taught a number of TEFL and hard-core linguistic courses to students majoring in English language and literature, which was naturally echoed in these students’ later careers as teachers at various levels. But it should also be clear from this that TEFL in her case indeed also means teaching English for life. Firstly, there is no denying that she dedicated her whole life to it – founding the Department, organizing courses, and raising generations of anglicists. Secondly, teaching English for life may be taken as a summary of her whole philosophy of heading the Department. Theoretical aspects have always received due attention in the organization of undergraduate studies as a sound foundation for practical life later, i.e. for the teaching career of our students. All this conceptual richness hidden in the title appears in a more explicit form in various contributions to this volume in one way or another. In fact, some of the contributions play on more than one layer hinted at above, and this thematic overlap accounts for a certain degree of tentativeness in our assigning them to one section rather than to a neighbouring one.
