  1. That’s great news! I have just registered but I selected the wrong period (I would like to come the first training session and I chose the second one). Is there a way to change that? Thanks!

    • Hi Goretti,
      Just send a message to Anna Ramon (anna.ramon@uab.cat) at UAB languages and she’ll be able to change the course for you.
      Looking forward to meeting you in Barcelona.
      All the best,

  2. Hi Kieran.
    I’m so pleased to hear that you will be sharing your knowledge,but unfortunately for me I am far from Spain (I am in Colombia). That would be a great idea to set a webinar for teachers who live out of your country and are interested on these topics.Thank you for sharing that amazing ideas.

    • Hi Maria,

      It’s possible that the course will be repeated in September and October. It would be best to contact Anna Ramon anna.ramon@uab.cat at UAB Languages and let her know that you’re interested in doing the course in September or October.
