IATEFL Hungary brought 300 delegates from 18 countries to Eger, a charming medieval city about 100km from Budapest, close to Slovakia, Romania & Ukraine for their excellent annual conference this past weekend.
The conference brought in international gurus like Scott Thornbury, Lindsay Clandfield, Ken Wilson, and was co-sponsored by the British Council, led locally by dynamic Country Director Simon Ingram-Hill.
The many highlights included Ken Wilson’s thoughtful but hilarious ‘Ten Quotes to make you think’ presentation, Steve Oakes’ session on ‘Embracing Ambiguity’, and David Hill on using British Folk Songs in class.
IATEFL Hungary have set up their own online conference site, with sessions, interviews, roving reporters and commentary for those who couldn’t make it to the actual conference. You can see interviews with many of the presenters, including your truly interviewed here.
Many thanks to organisers Zsuzsa Lindner and her dedicated committee for a stimulating and enjoyable conference.
Join us next year in Budapest for the 23rd conference.
