The All January Event 2015
Renata Albuquerque and Mr Perparim Tashi arranged for us to use the lovely Brunei Suite of SOAS. Thanks so much!
We are really grateful to our sponsors who paid for our refreshments, organised by Stéphane Derone. ABC Awards - Ardmore Educational Travel - Goethe Institute - Linguascope - Maison Claire Fontaine - Oxford University Press - Pearson - Thisislanguage - Vocab Express
Our introduction to Indonesian language and culture was conducted in OUTSTANDING fashion by Zac. We were engaged, entertained and made exceptional progress thanks to his imaginative techniques!
Sylvie Bartlett-Rawlings and Nadine Chadier made a wonderful ALL début sharing great strategies for primary teachers. Presentation here.
Helen Myers and Nick Mair gave a briefing on changes ahead for secondary languages and current issues regarding analysing and interpreting data. Presentation here.
The morning was rounded off with an absolutely brilliant session from Steven Fawkes on Using Literature. Presentation here.
Nick helped students prepare for interview and Helen chaired the AGM including giving a report on 2014 before Nadine shared a home made Galette des Rois (with sporting Nathan calling the numbers from under table, as befits tradition!). Finally the stalwarts repaired to a local restaurant for more chat.
Here are some comments from teachers after the event in answer to the question 'What did you enjoy?'
Thanks to mflresources for your kind comments. Here are some extracts:
'Thank you Helen, committee and speakers for an excellent morining. And thank you to the sponsors for very welcome refreshments. (Ruth)
It was a simply lovely morning. Excellent speakers, superb sponsors and the opportunity to speak to like-minded individuals.
I can still remember today the Indonesian we learned - Zak was a great teacher!!! (Sharon)
I agree. Lots of information, coffee and sweets. A very productive moment. (Carmen)
