II ELT Annual Conference at the British Council – Bilbao

Interesting, fruitful and nice morning that of last Saturday in Bilbao. BETEA, TESOL Spain and the British Council combined their positive energies to make this second ELT Conference a success and I think we got it.
More than 150 teachers from all educational sectors took part in the event.
Lui Garcia Gurrutxaga’s talk about New Law and Competencies had a big attendance and raised not only the interest of the listeners but also many questions. So intense was the session that Lui got short of time and the talk went on (thanks to Barbara and her efficiency) in an adjacent spare room for the next hour.
We must add that not only the talks were a great success but also the other sections of the morning: material and ideas’ swap, book exhibition, etc.
We would like to thank Anne Lennon for her support and the new director of the British Council Bilbao, Simon Creasey , wishing him that we enjoy his stay in the Basque Country.
