The Language Show http://www.languageshowconnect.co.uk/lslive attracts many people from all over the country, including many teachers.  It is free and this year it is being held at National Hall, Olympia from Friday 19th October to Sunday 21st October 2012.


It seems a nice opportunity to meet up informally, so we are supporting Joe Dale and Helen Myers as they host a Show and Tell during the show (Saturday 4.45 – 5.45).  During this session, you can offer to come to the front and share a teaching tip for a few minutes.  If you need to show anything via the laptop, please bring it on a stick or bring a web address, preferably uploaded beforehand on the wiki:



We know that language teachers like to carry on talking and people may just want to have somewhere to go for a quick drink and a chat before they hit the town (or the train home) later, so we have organised a  social event straight afterwards, taking place in a pub very near to  the exhibition venue. 

You don’t have to come to both events, but please try to!


Information is also available on the ALL London website: www.all-london.org.uk
