Keep an eye out on social media for updates. There will be a special early bird ticket of €20 for the first 100 members (2018-2019) who register. Thereafter tickets will cost €30 for members and €40 for non-members.

We have a super line up this year having secured the internationally renown Gianfranco Conti, PhD. Co-author of ‘The Language Teacher toolkit’, winner of the 2015 TES best resource contributor award and founder of www.language-gym.com. Gianfranco will give us two presentations on the day.

 

Once again we warmly welcome Ana Sánchez Pérez of Colegio Delibes for a guaranteed interesting and entertaining presentation on ‘Using Literature in the Classroom’. 

 

Registration on the day will be at 9am with the conference beginning at 9.30am. We aim to be finished by 4pm and as usual there will be some fantastic raffle prizes given out courtesy of our sponsors on the day.

 

At this stage all current members will have received an email reminding you to update your membership for the 2018-2019 year.  You can do so by logging into your account via our website or here at ATS membership Log In <https://atsirlanda.com/mem/>. Remember that your account is linked to the email address that you registered with so if you used your school email and no longer have access to it you will just have to register in the new again. Please also update your school details and status e.g. PME, Part-Time etc. if they are different for the coming year. New members can join here.

 

For those who wish to stay over on the Friday and/or Saturday night, the Green Isle Hotel are offering us a special price of €79 B&B for both single and double rooms. Don’t forget to mention the ATS when you book!

We are also offering members who have registered for the Conference the opportunity to participate in a *Table-Quiz* the night before the Conference, Friday 5th of October, which will also take place in the Green Isle Hotel.

This will be a great chance to meet and mingle with other members in an informal social setting whilst also having a bit of fun. Doors open at 7.15pm and the quiz will start at 8pm.
