New Technologies in ELT,
Norwich, UK, February 17-18 2007

Have you wondered what podcasts, vodcasts, corpora and CMC are all about? What Web 2.0 is? Have you heard of these terms and tools but are not sure just how they might be used in the language classroom?

This two-day event is a great opportunity to get up-to-date with recent technological developments, how they impact on the language classroom in general, and how they can be incorporated into English language teaching in particular.

An event packed with hands-on workshops which will give you the opportunity to experience first-hand everything you learn during the weekend.

Places are limited so please book early.
