Subject: Teaching with Comprehensible Input Workshop Coming to Montgomery County!

If you're new to the idea of teaching language with comprehensible input, this workshop will be a great introduction.

If you're already familiar with TPRS and CI, this workshop will be an uplifting reaffirmation and a chance to meet two nationally known, inspiring teachers and trainers without traveling far from home.

I can't attend the NTPRS or IFLT conferences out west this year, so I'm definitely going to this two-day workshop.  
The Philadelphia area workshop will be held at:
Souderton Mennonite Church105 W Chestnut St, Souderton, PA 18964, on Monday and Tuesday, July 10 and 11. 

The presenters:

Ben's biggest and best book: The Big CI Book

Hope to see you in Souderton,

Richard Detwiler
