In Donetsk today - the last day of my tour of Ukraine, having been to Kiev, Lviv, Odessa and Kharkiv. Feeling tired after all the travel but very happy. The sun has been shining all week, birds singing and the new greens of the trees positively radiant. I am so pleased at the response from teachers at my presentations. There's such a lot of passion and enthusiasm here. Plus a great sense of humour!
On my way home tomorrow via Kiev. Looking forward to sleeping in my own bed (sleeping on trains just doesn't cut it somehow) and recharging my batteries.
Lots of exciting trips to look forward to for the rest of the year including Mexico next month, Athens in July and Indonesia and Japan in the autumn. Yikes, I really do need to recharge those batteries, don't I?


OUP Crest

I was asked in Kiev what the Latin motto on the OUP crest means and promised to look it up.

It's the opening of Psalm 27 - The Lord is my Light. 


All systems go!

I am off to IATEFL in Liverpool tomorrow, speaking on Wednesday on Involving Parents in The Learning process at 17.10 in Hall 1a.

The conference is always such a great combination of talks and catching up with old friends from all over the world!

Another development is:

DEREE, The American College of Greece will be running a Trinity College London CertTESOL course in Athens in July and they have invited me to be one of the trainers.Check out their website for more information.
