Career Strategies Congress

The III National Conference for Teachers of English was held in Concepción del Uruguay from April 22nd to 25th. Teachers from different provinces (Tucumán, Corrientes, Formosa, among others) attended to different presentations at the new local auditorium. The event was fantastically organized by Ma. Laura Perrotta and Roxana Embon.

I met Gustavo Gonzalez - vice president of APIBA (Asociación de Profesores de Inglés de Buenos Aires) and vice president of FAAPI (Federación Argentina de Asociaciones de Profesores de Inglés) - who delighted the audience with his energy, videos, music and magic - yes, he performed some magic tricks.

I also met Fabiana Parano (photo) who spoke about how to tell a story in L2 and performed "The Black Cat" by Edgar Allan Poe.

I also spoke with Mady Casco about her material concerned with the first episode of the TV, her series "LOST" and her experience as teacher trainer.

I spoke about Worldcall 2008, presented ARCALL and spoke about mobile learning.

The final raffle was amazing. I think everybody got a present from the different sponsors even a training course in England and another in South Africa. Can´t miss this event next year!
