LAKMA Board member, IT SIG Coordinator

In April 2014, I took part in the 48th IATEFL International Annual Conference & Exhibition in Harrogate. Many thanks to the British Council for giving me this great oportunity. I would like to share a few photos from the event. Some photos are mine, and some were taken by Mr. Rachid Tagoulla, an English teacher and artist from Morocco. For more photos of the conference, click here.

There were around 500 talks and workshops given at Harrogate. 

Many sessions were recorded and they are available online: http://iatefl.britishcouncil.org/2014/sessions/

It was great to be at Harrogate.  I am grateful to the British Council for such a great opportunity to attend the biggest and most important ELT event of the year.
