Abstract

Given that the English language and Latin script are a ’mother tongue’ in the field of Internet technologies, there is an issue in Serbia concerning the use of Cyrillic script when it comes to teaching and learning processes in this professional community. This paper presents the results of a study carried out at the ICT College of Applied Studies in Belgrade on the usage of Cyrillic script by students majoring in Internet technologies study program. The research sample comprised students’ examination papers selected from courses taught by professors who use Cyrillic script in all segments of teaching. Out of 652 students’ papers, the usage of Cyrillic script accounted for 59%. This could be regarded as a remarkable outcome having in mind the predominance of English Latin script in the IT sector. To achieve even better results, the teachers at all levels of education should use Cyrillic script.
