Event Review by Tania Razmyslovich – ESL Teacher

First, thank you for the free opportunity to learn new and chat with like-minded people. Second, as always, thank you very much to colleagues for their smiles. I think we have (I have so accurate) already have a tradition of meeting colleagues regularly on such events and asking each other questions, sharing the experience.

Now directly about the content of the event. I’ll tell you honestly that I was going to the workshop without expectations because all the stated topics are not new to me and I think for many. But I was able to celebrate interesting moments, took myself to the piggy bank some ideas and was pleasantly surprised by some things.

Now learn more about this: Giovanni Rottura, your Italian charisma can melt glaciers. Thom Jones is a beautiful speaker. Great kept the audience in a state of arousal. Liked interactive. Plus Boxing is an awesome idea. Took me to the piggy bank. A good method for the development of fluency, in my opinion. On the wall in the group, you can watch the video with this exercise. Sharyn Collins, is a master of pronunciation! I’ve been wanting to get to this kind of event for a long time, where every sound would be dealt with. Now, of course, I dream to get to the individual pronunciation training it was interesting, informative and very professional.

Speakers From Atlantic language school – it was very nice to listen. I love stranovedčeskie topics! all the sympathy I gave to the lady who performed with the briefcases Atlantic language school after the presentation of this school. To the big my, unfortunately, I don’t even know the name of this lady. Colleagues, please share information. For me, it was a very interesting speaker because the methodology is my favourite theme :)and cases really were life. Unfortunately, there was little time for discussion.

The presentation of the representative of Oxford language was completed. Apart from all the above, I want to celebrate linguistic diversity. To hear and chat with representatives of Irish English, Welsh English, Italian English is in itself valuable.
