According to http://www.efltalks.com/Events.html

This event is being held to celebrate World Teacher’s Day with a 10 in 10 for 10, a free 10 hour marathon of webinars. Each webinar will be 10 minutes long and utilize 10 slides only. The idea is to get to the heart of the subject. We will open one webinar room lasting 10 hours so there is only one link to enter the webathon.

Or Register at http://efltalks.com/ and use the entry you will be taken to immediately on registration.

The host or hosts will have a 2 minute window to thank the presenter, mention the speaker’s site or email and then introduce the next speaker. This will allow for 5 speakers per hour so we hope to have 50 speakers during the course of the marathon.

All presentations were recorded and are now posted on http://www.efltalks.com/Videos.html (organized and set up like the TED talks page).

This is a free and non-profit event. Helping new and future teachers is our goal, and we also want to have fun.

Next Sunday Oct 4 Learning2gether will be a part of the EFLTalks program, at http://efltalks.com/

EFLtalks is a non-profit mission to produce an open and free space to share advice, tips and ideas to the next generation of EFL professionals. The project mixes the ideas of a webathon with a Pecha Kucha and TED talks all into one. Real blended teaching.

For the event, celebrating World Teachers’ Day, Rob and his team will kick-off a free 10-hour marathon of mini-webinars. Each speaker will have only 10 minutes using only PowerPoint 10 slides to make their point about their subject. We will open one webinar room lasting all 10 hours so there is only one link to enter the webathon, and viewers may come and go as time permits.

Welcome to the European Day of Languages 2015 we will celebrate on 24th September 2015. Because the 26th September is a Saturday and our school is closed that day we want to celebrate that event on the 24th September already.

This event is set up every year by the European Council in Brussels for all kind of schools in Europe to raise awareness about one common Europe community on one hand and to express the lingual diversity of all members of the EU on the other hand: “Being convinced that linguistic diversity is a tool for achieving greater intercultural understanding and a key element in the rich cultural heritage of our continent, the Council of Europe promotes pluralingualism in the whole of Europe.” Fourty-seven member countries belong to this community including the islands outside the European continent which belong to the EC as well.
