Nicoletta –DOS- meets Professor David Crystal at the 2011 Iatefl Conference in Brighton

Prof. David Crystal is one of the most prominent authorities on language. An internationally acclaimed and highly respected writer, journal editor, lecturer, broadcaster and is an Honorary Professor of Linguistics at the University of Wales, Bangor. In 1995 he received an OBE – Officer of the British Empire award (an order of chivalry) for his services to the study and teaching of the English language. I, along with 350 other delegates from around the globe attended Prof. Crystals’ comical sketch performed alongside his wife and son entitled “The History of the English Language”. He did a fantastic job of tapping into the curiosity we have for the origins of our mother tongue and exploiting what we already know… or thought we knew and wrapping that all up in a tongue-in-cheek comical representation of the history of English language and the language as it is today. A refreshing and energizing experience. Nicoletta- DOS

Martial Arts Lecture

EC Cape Town teacher, Aidan, gives students a riveting lecture and demo on the ancient and ornate world of Martial Arts. Being a black belt himself, Aidan effortlessly demonstrated some Tai Chi, Karate, Kung Fu and even Iaido ( involving a sword!! ) moves. Other Martial Arts, which were discussed included Judo and an extremely difficult extreme from Brazil – Capoeira!! A brilliant lecture, enjoyed by all who attended. -Nicoletta, DOS
