The 3rd EFL Symposium and Book Exhibition in Berrhœa
The State English Teachers’ Union of Imathia in co-operation with Mr Theodoros Skenderis, ELT Adviser for Emathia, Pella and Pieria, organised their 3rd consecutive EFL Symposium and Book Exhibition, kindly sponsored by Burlington Books, Express Publishing, Hillside Press and MM Publications, at the Elea café/restaurant in Berrhœa on Wednesday 6th September 2006.
Teachers of English arrived in their dozens to browse the fascinating titles displayed at the stands and make enquiries to the obliging sales representatives.
Not surprisingly, feedback on the thoughts and impressions of participants has clearly shown that the 3rd Symposium was an excellent resource for teachers, who are looking forward to a new similar event.
