Tousands of people, dozens of lectures, world-wide known surnames and the performance of Polish star – it was like that during an international IATEFL conference which was organised by the School of Foreign Languages WSG on 17th-19th September 2010.

WSG this time

            Between 17th and 19th September 2010 English language teachers met for the first time in Bydgoszcz and for the first time at not public university.

            Decision was made in September 2009 during IATEFL’s conference at Poznań Univesity of Technology. We prepared a multimedia WSG presentation and thousands of invitations. Thanks to the Town Hall’s materials we also presented Bydgoszcz itself. As it occurred people liked us much – says dr Irena Kudlińska, the director of the School of Foreign Languages WSG. – There are many universities in Poland but it was our which was chosen. We achieved it through hard work.

            There was a lot to fight for. Apart from linguists, methodologists and coursebooks’ authors from whole Poland, people who are known all over the world for the teaching of languages ​​from Great Britain and the United States also arrived at our conference.
