ALL Together: Language World at Imperial College London, 7-9 July 2011


Language World is the not-to-be-missed yearly conference organised by ALL, the Association for Language Learning. In these tempestuous times for languages, with the disappearance of Links into Languages and CILT as we knew them, Language World is very unique in trying to get all the languages teachers together and provide them with a dazzling range of CPD opportunities for languages teachers from all sectors.
This year, Language World will take place at Imperial College London from 7-9 July 2011. Visit ALL's website at for more details
If you are not a member, now is your opportunity to join to make sure your voice is heard and you will also get a discount on the conference and many more benefits including language journals and the fantastic Languages Today magazine .
As this year the conference is in London, it means that different teachers get a chance to "nip in" for a day should they want to. Last year, the conference was held in York, which was very practical for colleagues based in the North but required more planning for other colleagues. This year, you can make a day trip of going to the conference-or just go to the free conference exhibition, which is always great to find out about the most up-to-date languages resources on the Market. In fact, you can even take your department with you and make this a Faculty INSET...

This year, you will be able to attend training sessions run by  Rachel Hawkes, Bernadette Holmes, Claire Dodd, Liz Black, Greg Horton, Lisa Stevens, Liz Fotheringham, Joe Dale, Eva Lamb, Chris Hart, Mike Kelly, Martine Pillette, Alex Blagona, Wendy Adeniji, Suzi Bewell, Sara Vaughan, Vincent Everett, Chris Fuller  and many more (including myself!) …

You can also find out about last year’s training sessions here with a copy of the materials presented by speakers
Last but not least, you will be able to take part in a Show and Tell where you can just share with other teachers something that has worked for you in the classroom. I love these sessions as they are very effective in giving you new ideas and reminding you of things you used to do and have not done in a while. The show and tell will be offered in different rooms according to your teaching profile i.e primary, secondary, community languages and  higher  education, so you get maximum benefit out it.
See you ALL Together at Language World 2011, London, Imperial College Friday 8th to Saturday 9th July
The best professional “me time” you will get for  a while…
