Mis experiencias en el programa ENGLISH SUMMER TOWN 2006

Hello everybody,
I just got back to Chiloe yesterday afternoon. Our schedule was hardly intensive, but very interesting and full of learning...we had conferences every morning from 09 to 10 a.m as plenary sessions, then workshops started for each group of more than 15 teachers, I had Computerized Language assesment workshop with Dennis J. from British Columbia Institute of Technology on Monday, next I met Cheryl Ernst from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale about Developing Learning Guides to Integrate Skill Building (Superb!), I missed workshops on Wed and Thursday, and I had Joining a Community of Practice at English Summer Town -Now and Forever with Gjoa Andrichuk from British Columbia Institute of Technology (Very interesting). During our afternoon, I met Marcela Fuentes from UMCE Chile with Pronunciation Games on monday, and a magnificent teacher of Folk Dance, Mrs. Kay Forsyth from Utah University on tuesday ( the best indeed), Global parameters for English Certification on wendesday, and Short Stories fro kids with Margret Guntren from the Cultural Institute and Embassy of the USA. Evenings were funny and motivating, we had Karaoke at an English Pub, a Film, Maori Performance from New Zealand, and English Open Doors Contest of the Ministry of Education. I want to share some interesting pictures, and at the same time I want to say Thanks and Hope to meet you soon again to the teacher colleagues I met this English Summer Town 2006 in Santiago. Thanks for this chance to the Ministry Of Education and the crew of the program English Open Doors.
