Language World 2012, 30-31 March, University of Manchester: Languages for All - Defining Today, Transforming Tomorrow!

Language World 2012, the annual conference organized by ALL, the Association for Language Learning, will take place this year at the  University of Manchester, Sackville Street Campus, 30 - 31 March.
Language World is THE professional development event for language teachers in the UK: two days of non-stop CPD, updates, ideas and inspiration; an exhibition with all the latest resources, services and equipment and a chance to share and learn with colleagues from all over the country. It is also the opportunity to be part of your subject community and contribute to the future of language teaching and learning!
The Programme has something for everyone: a Language World debate panel, a fantastic range of workshops and major talks as well as show & tell sessions, giving you a change to contribute directly.
You can download the summary programme, and more details for the Friday programme and Saturday programme too.
Access to the Exhibition is free, with a great selection of companies offering training, resources and software. More information here.
There are a number of extra events going on around the main conference, such as:
- A walking tour of Manchester, with Geoff Brammall from the ALL Manchester group at 3pm on Thursday 29 March,
- A wine reception in the Language World exhibition, sponsored by Pearson, at 5pm on Friday 30 March and
- The annual Language World dinner, sponsored by Sanako, at 7:30pm on Friday 30 March.
More details are available from here.
If you want to support ALL, please help spread the word. You can print out and put up the Language World poster, and tell your language teacher friends and colleagues about it.
I will be there on both days and I am looking forward to meeting old and new friends. The languages teachers community is simply amazing and Language World is the only event that really makes you feel like you belong to a very special group of people…

Come on and join us!
