Canada Day in Visegrád Feedback

The Visegrad conference on Canada held by IATEFL made such an impression in Ottawa, that they put an article about it on the Ministry's open access website. Have a look!

Great Reading



A couple of my summer readings are connected to my professional life and I'd like to recommend them.

London by Edward Rutherford is very enjoyable historical fiction. It traces the history of the city through the saga of several families. Also by Rutherford is Sarum the story of Salisbury and also recommended.

Bill Bryson's Mother Tongue, is linguistics the light and funny way. It was a pleasure to refresh my knowledge and laugh at the same time.

Retreat


In July I had the privilege and fun of being the interpretor for Father. Anthony Vadakkemury V.C. at a six day spiritual retreat in Érsekújvár. It was amazing! Thank you to Otília Kabai, András Török for another outstanding job in organising. Same place same time next year.

BE A LEADER


Congratulations to MM Publications - ELT Hungary on a great conference. With over 800 participants over two days it really was impressive to see how smoothly everything went. Thank you to them for inviting me to give my workshop on the Canadian Experience, it was terrific working together. The presentations I saw were excellent and I met a lot of old and new friends. The venue was just lovely, as was the lunch. See you again next year!

Summertime


Dear Friends,
Well this summer has come to an end, and it has again been an eventful one. I haven't been posting so I have a lot of catching up to do to cover some of the activities I'd like to share. Tune in in the following weeks when I'll try to relate some of my adventures.
