During The ICLHE 2019 conference hosted by the Universitat Jaume I, keynote speakers were live streamed.
Dr Elena Borsetto and Dr Ada Bier, two of our participants from Italy, were delayed on their way to the conference and sent us their story.:
When this morning our train from Valencia to Castellón was cancelled, all we could think of was that we would be late for David Lasagabaster’s plenary. A fact that, in our multilingual minds, sounded like “Oh mamma mia! ¡Vamos a llegar cuntun ritart spaventôs! Dommage!” Luckily, we remembered that we had the chance to attend the plenary “virtually” through the live streaming! So, as soon as we arrived at the station in Castellón, we connected to the dedicated section in the ICLHE website and strode to “Universitat Jaume I” while listening to David’s talk: it was as clear as if we were there already! We didn’t miss a word so that, when we finally arrived at the conference place, we could easily catch up (¡Qué bueno!). Por esto, queremos dar las gracias a los organizadores para la oportunidad 🙂
Merci beaucoup, Graciis di cûr, Grazie mille, Thank you!
