Having read today's postings regarding the conferences to be held in the
summer, I was wondering if you would be interested in posting this one as
well. I believe that there may be a number of participants in our list
who would benefit from this news regrding L2 learning technology.

very nice people, and where one finds out how to incorportate interesting
things into one's language programs!
