Laura dear! Thank you!

The possibilities of connecting that you provide can be a benefit juts by itself.
I enjoyed Friday night dinner very much, had quite a laugh at Robert’s jokes and the trip to “the meat dispenser” weren’t such a burden. Ha,ha,ha,!!
Looking forward to creating possibilities together. I’ll be sending you something by next week.
Take care and take a rest… now that you can.
Big hugs to you and Miguel!

Dear Mrs Lewin:
Thank you for the opprotunity of being part of such an interesting and enriching event. We are from Colegio Monte Tabor, Santiago, Chile and attending the congress was worth the effort and sacrifice of leaving our families during five days. Besides we could enjoy the surroundings of your beautiful capital city.
The talks presented were full of very useful ideas and information about trends and methodology that we want to apply here as soon as possible.
I'm looking forward to attending any of your amazing talks whenever you come to Chile.
yours faithfully
Catalina Laage
Dear Laura: Thank you for such a motivating, well organized and interesting congress!!!
Hopefully I´ll be there again next February!
Keep in touch,

Dear Laura and all ABS members,

It is not you who should thank us. Thank YOU for everything you do for teachers! Thanks for spicing up our performances, for lightening our lives, for letting us know that there are lots of things to do yet!

The Congress was a great success, and you made it so thanks to your efforts! You create a perfect atmosphere for having fun, learning, keeping in touch with our profession, with ourselves ansd meeting great people and professionals.

I should also thank them, for htey are the ones opening to us to share their experience to help us in our teching. All of them were really enlightening and kind.

You all really help us become the best teachers we can be because you work on our hearts, not only our minds. The fact that music never stops playing and that all of you take the time to greet every one of us and take your time to say something nice is priceless. Thanks for that!

I hope you continue doing what you do which is really great. Congratulations to you all.

María Eugenia Gallego from Luján Bs. As.

Dear Laura,

Let me tell you that the ones that must be thankful are us. The congress was such a great experience that we are looking forward to going there again next year!!

My friend and I were thrilled with all the lectures; we enjoyed them all. We will convince the rest of our classmates to come with us next year. We really had a great time, and we could learn from very different tspeakers who fullfilled all our expectations.
Even though we are still learning many things, and we consider ourselves not very experienced, this Congress has helped us to find new aspects of teaching, learning and sharing with others. Now we expect to put all this knowledge into practice.

Thank you very much for letting us have such a wonderful experience, and congratulations because of the organization of the event.

Please, let me now more about your events and conferences.

Dear Laura,
First things first: I again wanted to congratulate you on a wonderful conference.
It was very stimulating and rich in ideas and sights. I enjoyed the whole experience thoroughly both as a speaker and as a participant. I'm sorry I left without saying goodbye, but I didn't really want to interrupt your
dancing and had to go. By the way, congrats on your engagement!!!
Thanks again for everything, I really had a great time. Hope to hear from you soon,

Dear Laura,
I mentioned this to you in person, but would like to reiterate that my experience at the conference was absolutely unforgettable! Shash and I reached back to LA on time and in once piece. He says thank to you for getting him over to Argentina too. He wouldn’t have really thought about visiting if it were not the conference I was going to. Overall, our trip from Ushuaia to Iguazu via Buenos Aires was a very memorable one and we are completely in love with Argentina, it’s food, it’s people, and of course, the alfajores! We are officially on a sugar-free diet starting today to balance out the helados, the chocolate, and the flans we had every single day of our stay in Argentina.
This conference was my first experience of 100% motivation, dedication to the profession, and eagerness to learn among the audience. The arrangements were fantastic – how couldn’t they be considering your impeccable planning and personal attention to every detail! Miguel was also phenomenal at keeping track of changes and needs of the participants and exhibitors alike. I was completely impressed with everything I saw and experienced there and also want to convey my thanks for introducing me to a few key contacts.
I got back to the office today and reported to our director, Ms. Bronwyn Jenkins-Deas, right away. She was very happy to hear about the conference and my presentation and has also started working on the contact you sent to Guilherme. He is out of his office at a fair in Brazil and will be getting in touch with you when he returns. You will be hearing from both Bronwyn and Guilherme soon and we hope that we can have you and Miguel in Riverside soon to see the amazing changes and plans we are working on right now at our IEP.
I also met Sheila today in the corridor and told her what an amazing conference I had. She was delighted to hear about it and I also had to narrate to her the special attention you got for UCR at the closing ceremony along with your mention of how Sheila has been a mentor to you for so many years. She was really touched and was extremely happy to know that you are leading such an important organization.
Laura, I thank you again for the opportunity and hope that you also feel you had a good conference. I am looking forward to really re-establish our connection with Argentina through you and to all our future endeavors together. We’ll stay in touch!

Best, Tarana

hug from beatrice nansen

Dear Laura,
A warm hug and many thanks for an event I truly enjoyed and surely profitted. Also thanks for your lovely letter, a song of joy in praise of education.
And once again, thanks for giving me the certificate in advance after my unpleasent "nose" accident which prevented me from staying up to the end, which I truly regretted.
Once again, it's been really helpful, and now I'm really busy trying to put into action and process everything we received.
Lots of love, Leticia

Dear Laura,
I thoroughly enjoyed the English Coordinators' course! I found many of the speakers highly motivating and inspiring, and have already implemented some of the ideas raised in the seminars. I will definitely be coming next year.
Thank you so much! Kind Regards,

Dear Laura,

This was my first time in one of your events. I attended talks on Thursday and Friday and I enjoyed them a lot. Not only were they very interesting, but also everything was very well-organized. It was very useful for me.

Thank you very much for letting me share this with all of you.

Dear Laura
I am writing to you to express a deep feeling of hapiness and gratefulness with this generous opportunity: to attend the Congress. I have been treated with respect, with tenderness and I would like to express my degree of fulfilment. I am very grateful and need to express that.
I lok forward to seeinf you and your staff next February
My best regards form Rosario...
Mónica Quevedo

Dear Laura,
As I told you when I was leaving the congress, I went to B.A for Coordinating I & II in May and I also enjoyed this Congress. But you will not get rid of me so easily. I´m already surfing the net to know more about the Congress for teachers in February and I´m trying to encourage more people in my school to do it. I´ll go in February, anyway.
As regards the congress, I tell you I had never managed to feel myself so motivated in other seminars before. For the first time it was not just a
course in which I was only given a lot of theory to read but also loads of practical tips and ideas to work as a coordinator and as a teacher as well!
And what is more, I feel more commited as an educator than ever. You are the `soul´ of the congress . Thank you!!
See you in February!!!!!!!!!

Dear Laura:
My name is Jorgelina Arnoldi and I am one of the owners and heads at New Concept School of English. I had the chance of attending the Congress for Coordinators, which I enjoyed a lot, not only for the excellent level of lectures -from which I profited greatly- but also for the professionalism with which it was organized. Congratulations!!
New Concept is an institute with two branches, one in Devoto and the other in V. del Parque and since its very beginning in 1992 we've been interested in developing systems and strategies that help us grow -both in the fields of education and business.

Thank you again,
Jorgelina Arnoldi
Dear Laura,

The Congress was fantastic!!! As usual, I left the place full of new ideas, willing to implement changes and think about new possibilities...
Your talk about appraisals was very interesting and, as you suggested, I would like to receive the content of the transparencies, in order to study the subject better.
I hope it's not to soon to be bothering you with this.

Thank you!!!
