|Laura dear! Thank
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
I'm looking forward to attending any of your amazing talks whenever
you come to Chile.
|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
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
I hope you continue doing what you do which is really great. Congratulations
to you all.
María Eugenia Gallego from Luján Bs.
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.

Thank YOU for your kindness and the energy you have which is nicely
I surely will be back in August, so...
see you soon.
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,

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.
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
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!

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

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
Thank you so much! Kind Regards,
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.

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...
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
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
See you in February!!!!!!!!!
A big Thank You to all ABS-international staff !!!!!

The best congress we've ever been to... Well, how would you do the

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,
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.
