The EUROCALL 2007 conference is under way


Well, here we are in the Virtual Strand workshop, which appears to be going very well.

The Executive Committee have had one busy working day and an excellent meal in The Bushmills Inn, a beautiful old coaching inn in the town where the Bushmills Irish Whiskey Distillery is located. Bushmills is my favourite Irish Whiskey, produced by the oldest distillery in the world, founded 1608.

But we are also here for serious reasons, of course :-)) Over 200 participants from all over the world are arriving in Northern Ireland to take part in this conference on teaching languages with new technologies. We hope that you will join us online and take part in the blog and live chat.

The Virtual Strand IS working well.

We're working out the bugs: getting invited to the blog, signing in, commenting and posting. We're chatting virtually and as Orana, who is sitting next to me, says, pseudo-virtually. We're basically having a good time!

The weather is nice and fresh. Such clean, sea air!
And well, the Guinness...it's good for what ails you, too.
