I really enjoyed the variety and quality of speakers. I could tune in and tune out at my convenience and need. It was also great making new contacts. I only wish the lawyer could have had more time. However, keeping everyone limited was the fair and necessary.

The talks were short and sweet and mostly of a practical nature which is what interests most EFL teachers. The programme gave viewers the opportunity to view things that interest each individual and come and go at will. In a nutshell, it was a nice laid back event with something for everyone.

It was a real celebration of World Teachers' Day. The sharing of experiences of teachers throughout the world shows our global concern with education and proves that motivated teachers are the real agents of change. Different experiences allow testing them with our students and comparing ourselves to what is happening in the world in the field of education.
