3 Free English Training Sessions
All available online, from the comfort of your own home
Hello, and happy day to you! I wanted to do a quick post and tell you about these online English webinars that I am co-hosting this month. I am excited to share these opportunities with you because they are free and will all provide you with a unique learning experience. Plus, if you’ve never “met” me, then this is a great place to do it because all of them will include a LIVE Q&A (question and answer).
So first let me explain what a webinar is. A webinar is a word that has been combined from WEB (internet) and SEMINAR (a meeting with training and instruction); so the word webinar means an online based meeting with some training and instruction. If you have never been to one, you should! They are great! I have been to many, as well as hosted a few!
