We get a mention!! ELT Blog Carnival – Teaching and Learning with Video

Hi folks

Just wanted to share this with you.

We pride ourselves with the way that our friends have the opportunity to engage in learning, make friends and feel part of something positive. These activities go above and beyond the primary objective of acquisition of the English language when considering the plight of our learners who are often isolated socially.
