English at Work Conference 2018
This beautiful Sunday finds the HELTA committee deeply exhausted but equally pleased with our event yesterday:
The English at Work conference on 1 September in Hamburg at the Berufsschule für Medien und Kommunikation was by far the biggest event our organisation has ever put together. In numbers: 82 participants showed up to see 19 speakers in four blocks and one plenary, six publishers exhibited their books and, along with two more, donated 75 raffle prizes, for which members bought 200 tickets and raised 500 euros for T4S, as well as one sponsor for one 10-year old boy in the Gambia. As the stereotypical mathematically-challenged language teacher, I can’t say with any certainty what all of this adds up to but I think it’s clear that that’s a fantastic result. Thank you very much to everyone who was there!
Several speakers have kindly agreed to make their presentation slidesavailable. They can be found here. More will be added over the next few days, so please check back if you couldn’t yet find the slides you were looking for.
