Ann Foreman had a very interesting idea to organize an online hangout with participants originally from different parts of the world who are now all in Liverpool for the IATEFL conference. At 19.00 GMT on Thursday a group of enthusiastic teachers met in Google+ Hangout:

  • Ann Foreman from England
  • Olga Barnashova from Russia
  • Sirin Soyoz from Turkey
  • Sanja Bozinovic from Croatia

We talked about our impressions, the highlights of the conference and what we are taking home from this conference. Google +Hangout proved to be a very interesting way of put together people who would otherwise had a hard time meeting and exchanging opinions. We met online although we were all in Liverpool and made it as an experiment this time, but perhaps in the future such online meetings will become an additional feature of various teaching events and Teaching English website.
