2019 Spring Fling: What a day it was!

SCELTConference, ELT

On Saturday, March 16, 2019, SCELT held its first one-day spring conference with Dorothy Zemach. Despite it being the Saturday after maturita week and the day of the 1st-round of elections for the Slovak presidency, around 50 colleagues from in and around Bratislava (and even from Hungary and Austria!) gathered to learn, to share their expertise, to network, and to simply have a good time together.

Thank you to the US Embassy Bratislava and the Regional English Language Office Belgrade for making this event possible.relo
