Our sponsors Vocabexpress, Sanako, OUP and Network for Languages - all coordinated by Stephane Derone of Linguascope
The European Commission for all of the freebies!
Our fantastic speakers, James Stubbs, Jeremy Harmer and Rachel Hawkes [Click on their names for a link to their online 'presence' and relevant resources)
The national President of our Association, Bernadette Holmes who came to support and give us an up-date
The committee and other friends who all 'roll their sleeves up' to set it all up
The quality 'audience' who got up early on a Saturday morning and comfortably listened and interacted.. you were wonderful!

 'Keeping the plates spinning’ Rachel Hawkes, http://www.rachelhawkes.com/ ALL network coordinator for South Cambridgeshire and Assistant Head, Comberton College Teachers need something of the 'acrobatic' about them to press all the right buttons with students. Not every idea needs to be rocket science, but it's the right combination of tasks at the right time for the right students that creates an effective combination for learning.  This session will combine ideas old and new to help us.  We so admire Rachel for the wealth of ideas and energy she has, and really look forward to hearing her once more!
