The ‘Eagle has Landed!” actually Rob Howard has arrived in Birmingham to what looks like typical English weather, however wishing him a fantastic visit and presentation!

I will be blogging about IATEFL with (hopefully some pics and details from Rob Howard). Following are the very first two photo’s direct from Rob’s phone at his arrival. 

Hopefully Rob will take some pics with our favourite online colleagues that I’m sure he’ll be catching up with during the day and maybe a dinner or two.

In the meantime today the pre-event day, the Online Presenters Rob, Nik and Kirsteen interviewed Herbert Puchta; David Nunan; Any Curtis; Marjories Rosenberg; Lisa Peter; Anna Searle; Julie Pratten – order here is last to first! Having missed some of the livestream interviews the recordings are now all available. The interesting thing is the noise in the background heard throughout the interviews is the ‘set up’ of the stalls happening.

Here is the link to the interview by Nik Peachey with Julie Pratten talking about the HEART ELT project and the first book about to be published (proud to have been contributor) end of month or therabouts. If you’re interested in finding out more about the Heart ELT project and upcoming events then visit their website.

A few screen pics from the interviews are here below:

Back tomorrow for more live events and updates!
