Authentic Suggestopedic Language Teaching
Lozanov International Teacher and Training Association (LITTA) established by Dr. Lozanov in 2006 was dissolved after his death in 2012. Some of the LITTA members who have been working with Suggestopedia wished to share their knowledge and experiences among themselves and to pass them on to those who would take interest in Suggestopedia and use the method in their work of education and communication. The initial discussions were held among Zlatotveta Dumeva (Zlatka), Renata Natcheva (Reni), the late Dr. Lubomir Ganovsky, Franz Ludescher, Stavriana Soubassi and Setsuko Iki. Several meetings were held in Sofia and Athens, and in the meeting on May 2016 in Vienna the LITTA was founded by Zlatka Dumeva, Reni Natcheva, Franz Ludescher, Lisa Hartmark, Stavriana Soubassi and Setsuko Iki. The decision was made to move forward as seen in this website.About us
Suggestopedia is a teaching-learning methodology whose main aim is to activate the learners’ untapped reserves of the mind. It was developed in the 1970s in Sofia by the neuroscientist and psychotherapist Dr. Georgi Lozanov with his colleagues at the Research Institute of Suggestology at the University of Sofia ‘Kliment Ohdridski’ (– among which are the present LITTA executive members Zlatotsveta Dumeva and Renata Natcheva -) and later with the contribution of the linguist, pedagogue and artist Dr. Evelyna Gateva.
