Well just so you don’t think that IATEFL is all work and no play, I thought I’d fill you in on one of the many great evening events at IATEFL.
Last night Sirin, Leo and I braved the IATEFL crowd and picked our mics not to present but to sing! Yes, that’s right: Karaoke! Think about it; mix up a pub full of exhibitionists (English teachers), a long list of cheesy hits and a mic and you’re asking for trouble.
I have to say Leo made us proud with his rendition of ‘Alive and Kicking’ and others. However, Sirin and I (it could possibly have been my fault) chose a song in which we thought we knew how to sing but it turns out we only knew the chorus. Very embarrassing! Ah well, a fun night was had and I have already chosen my song for next year for karaoke in Glasgow!!! :)
It was great fun, meeting lots of interesting people and sharing ideas at the conference and I liked blogging too. Hopefully I’ll get to do it for IATEFL next year in Glasgow too!
