The 9th Foreign Languages Forum was held in Royal Olympic Hotel, on 27th-28th August 2016. A week later, 3rd-4th September, the Autumn 2016 Athens International Publishers Exhibition took place in Divani Caravel Hotel. TESOL Greece was present in both events! There were several exhibitors informing people about their material and speakers who presented the latest news and trends in the field through workshops and seminars.
The response of the visitors was great and there was a lively atmosphere. School owners, EFL teachers and university students were offered new material from the publishers and they also had the opportunity to exchange ideas and get inspired during the presentations.
A lot of people showed interest in the TESOL stand where they could be given details about the organization, the upcoming events and the way they may become members. Furthermore, newsletters and the programme of the previous annual convention were given out.
On Sunday, the 4th of September, the IP exhibition hosted the professional presentation of Dr Penny Masoura, AMC Education Programme Leader and Ioanna Georgakopoulou, ESP Teacher and Theater Pedagogue. The theme of their talk was ‘’Keeping it Practical’’, Connecting Theory and Practice in the classroom. This workshop demonstrated ways to understand the English language through both funny and practical activities.
The overall arrangement of the exhibitions was very enjoyable!
