    Hello Louis!
    Welcome to TESOL!  I'm pretty sure I have also been able to connect with you on the TESOL 2021 virtual platform!  What was has been the most impactful TESOL 2021 talk that has helped you in your teaching practices?  I was impacted so much by our plenary speakers - especially Dr. Clint Smith and Glenn Singleton!

    Hi Anastasia. Thanks for your message. Definitely, the TESOL 2021 virtual platform is my second world these days! I'm still learning. The most impactful TESOL 2021 talks have been Deborah Short's keynote, Tamara Jones' presentation on 10 vocabulary games for secondary ESOL, and also David Burke's exhibitor session on teaching idioms and slang. But besides, there are numerous other edifying sessions that I've watched,  including poster sessions. I'm still watching every day. I'm also happy to have colleagues around the world today! The 90 days after the live Convention will profit me so much.
