It's all about storytelling

We are happy to announce our 2nd EnglishMAnnia online conference 'It's all about storytelling'

Hey, there! My name is Anya and I'm an English teacher from Russia. I'm really passionate about using books in the lessons and everything connected to that topic. So last year I decided to hold a free conference 'It's all about books' and it went really well. You can watch it here  and here 

This year the conference is all about storytelling and I hope there will be more teachers from around the world interested in this event. Join in!

You can contact me here or here.
