Language World 2017 #LW2017

Here are my sketchnotes from this year's Language World conference, which took place in Nottingham yesterday and the day before.

The main thing I have learned is that our new printer-scanner-copier is slightly too small to scan successfully the size of notebook that I chose to use, so apologies for the little bits of pages that are cut off or the ones that are a bit wonky.

The opening of Language World, by ALL President Anna Lise Gordon.
We spent a lot of time huddling and sharing!
