Doğuş University held their first ELT conference at the end of November and quite an event it was. In addition to attending and keeping the general public informed via twitter and Facebook, I also participated as a presenter. Here are my thoughts about the event.

There are films that change your life. There are songs that give you a very strong heart beat and there are books that spiritualize you. There are also some days or events that change your whole life. My story begins on a nice snowy day in Istanbul of the 1990s.

I’ve recently been doing a lot of storytelling to under-fives in the UK, as part of a project called ‘Every Child a Talker’, designed to encourage parents to talk more to their very young children. Increasingly children are reaching primary school with less-developed vocabularies, speech difficulties, or lack of confidence.
