The language Show is Back!

LanguageShow_09

Once again the biggest event for language learners, language teachers, language lovers, linguists or those who just want to indulge in a little wine tasting, is taking place in Olympia, London from the 30th of October to the 1st  of November 2009.

The Language Show is free to attend; you just have to register in advance by going to the exhibition’s web site – http://www.thelanguageshow.co.uk/

The show offers an array of distinguished exhibitors (including us WAES!): Colleges, schools, publishers, specialist language teachers, recruiters and quality speakers.   The event is aimed to help, advise and provide tips and resources needed to learn or teach languages.

The talks and events this year look to be a well-judged mixture of fun insight sessions and in-depth guidance. I would strongly recommend popping in some of the language teachers’ Seminars, particularly the E-Learning related talks!

This is a good one for our music department.

YouTube is inviting people from around the world to audition for the YouTube Symphony Orchestra. All the video entries will be combined into the first ever collaborative virtual performance, and the world will select the best of you to perform at New York City’s Carnegie Hall in April 2009.

If you need any help with the recording and uploading the video to YouTube, please dom not hesitate in contacting your ELearning team.

WAES Stand

WAES Stand

The Language Show was a huge success. Our lovely stand really stood out because of all the nice people working there during these three days, giving loads of information about WAES, the cost-effective prices and the fortune cookies!

The Language Show 2008

It was our first year exhibiting at the Language Show. Our stand was visited by lots of people interested in studying and working with us. I think that this initiative will pay off. Our next step will, definitely, be participating in the seminars. I have attended loads of interesting seminars delivered by teachers sharing their projects carried out in their schools, E-learning Consultants highlighting the importance of ICT in the learning process, and teacher trainers such as Russel Stannard, lecturer at the University of Westminster. Russell brought a new concept of giving feedback to students that is fantastic. I will be writing a post on this new way of marking students’ assignments very soon. Actually, I will need two or three volunteers to take part of this project I am starting!

So, let’s hope that next year WAES will be at the Language Show once again, not only publicising our courses but also showing our ICT projects!

Watch the video!

Nice one!
