David Graddol’s conference

Julian Wing “blogged” David Graddol’s video-conference on the BC ELT Forum while Shaun has posted his impressions on his own blog. I am looking forward to your comments.

Later in the evening, Mike and Barbara Thornton hosted a diner party at their beautiful house in Pinheiros to welcome the Hornby Summer School participants and tutors, who came to Sao Paulo for the Graddol’s conference and some shopping.  We spent a most enjoyable time weaving connections, drinking and being merry 🙂

Check Ines’ and Isa´s report on the day.
