Accentuate a success!

I think it’s fair to say that the Accentuate: bringing pronunciation to the fore day conference, organised by NATECLA London and IATEFL PronSIG, was a great success. On the day we had some 100 English language teaching professionals present, drawn from both EFL and ESOL teaching contexts, and a programme of interesting and engaging talks and workshops. Here are some highlights from the day. All photos by Elixabete Lopez Segura.

A committee photo! Don’t think we’ve had one of those before, at least not with so many members of our NATECLA London committee present.
