Vlad Pejovic was born in Sydney Australia to Yugoslavian parents. In his younger days, he worked as
lawyer, a tour guide, a yoga teacher and a mechanic, and also travelled extensively, before he settled in to
English language training. He now has almost 25 years of experience in ELT in Indonesia, as an
instructor, program manager, teacher trainer, course designer, materials writer and assessor.
His professional qualifications include a BA LLB, an RSA CELTA, an RSA DELTA, and an MA in Applied
Linguistics. He is also active in IELTS (International English Language Testing System) for whom he
works as an Examiner Support Coordinator (managing a team of Examiner Trainers in the ASEAN and
South Asia region), and as Assistant Principal Examiner (helping to create test and training materials).
Vlad suspects he has some Indonesian genes in his family tree, as he has always felt at home in
Indonesia. Initially he lived in Jogjakarta and Jakarta, and in 1991 moved to Bali. He has mostly lived in
Sanur – it’s quieter, he says, and the traffic is not so bad. He spends his spare time doing yoga, playing
tennis, go-karting with his son, reading and eating… sate lilit is a favorite.
