I was very happy that Carol Read was so easy to persuade and eager to talk to #ELTchat followers!

This interview was done in one go and it may not be the best in terms of the technical set up but Carol’s great persona shines through my poor videtaping skills and she has poise and confidence and much more!!! Listen to her comments about how long and in what capacities she has served IATEFL and perhaps you might decide to vote for her!

This video was made with Vodburner

I hope you have found some interest in Carol’s comments, especially the news that there will be an IATEFL app !!!! That was indeed a scoop, hot off the press!!!

Carol Read is a Twitter user and when the topic of young learners comes up on ELTchat, she is sure to follow!

If you are an IATEFL member and have not voted yet, she is indeed a great candidate!!!
