We would like to invite you to participate in the conference ‘The Magic of Innovation: New Techniques and Technologies in Teaching Foreign Languages’ to be held in Moscow on 4-5 October 2013. The event, which will be hosted by the Moscow State Institute of Foreign Relations (MGIMO University), is timed to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the University’s School of International Relations. The conference is organized by English Language Department No. 1 of the School of International Relations with the support of the European Studies Institute.
