Pecha Kucha Session
An event not to miss on Saturday evening! There will be not one, not two, but SEVEN Pecha Kucha sessions! I am so excited about this. The MC for the Pecha Kucha will be Margarita Kosior, who is also the E-Bulletin Editor for TESOL Macedonia-Thrace.
The Pecha Kucha presenters are:
- Kieran Donaghy

- Theodora Papapanagiotou

- Despina Karamitsou
- Kathy Kyriakidou and
- Božica Šarić- Cvjetković.
And there will be lots of workshops and talks during the two days of the conference. Here is the Preliminary Programme 2014, so you can choose your sessions.
I am looking forward to it – this is going to be a conference definitely not to miss!
Thank you so much, everyone at TESOL Macedonia-Thrace!
