EL Gazette Reviews in brief – disclaimer

Wow! What a FANTASTIC closing sentence to the review of Networking in English in the EL Gazette…

and NO, I didn’t write it….honestly, such narcissism and selfpraise would be unworthy of me….

enjoying the multiple tweets of the audience at the IATEFL opening plenary….and looking forward to a fantabulosa day….:-)

BESIG, Poznan

Enjoying this great conference – maybe because the sessions I’ve chosen have all delivered, maybe because you can get water and coffee whenever you need it…or just catching up with old friends – anyway, a great day…..and congrats to PSA’s Paul East on being voted joint BESIG co-ordinator with Marjorie Rosenberg…..
