ABSTRACT: 

The purpose of our study is to describe how the Covid-Pandemic has changed and what impact it has had on the learning environment in our country. The article deals with the analysis of the problems based on a case study and observation methods, which are remarkable because elements of distance learning had not been introduced in our learning space before.

The pandemic has given an incredible impetus to the introduction of distance learning in education and our daily lives in general, which has obviously posed new challenges. Distance learning has brought to the fore the issue of time management, interactive teaching methods (collaborative, dynamic, entertaining, encouraging, teamwork, etc.), technology and application integration, material visualization and design issues and finally – studies in the field of neuroeducation: Knowledge of cognitive mechanisms have increasingly changed didactic thinking and enriched teaching practices. The technological advances of the last decade offer unprecedented opportunities to process/master the vocabulary of a second language (L2). A memory-based model is presented to help language learners understand the nature of teaching L2 vocabulary. The study presents how all of this was introduced and implemented in the virtual classroom.
