A LOOK BACK:  2009 workshop in Salt Lake City

Over the weekend of January 17-18, 2009, our Euskara instructors got together once again.  These annual  workshops assemble all those at work teaching Euskara in our Basque clubs with the dual hopes of providing them useful teaching material and a boost of enthusiasm to keep going.  This year's workshop was held in Salt Lake City, and hosted in the home of NABO President Mary Gaztambide.  The workshop was directed by our NABO Euskara coordinator Izaskun Kortazar and from our sponsor HABE in the Basque Country was Kinku Zinkunegi.  Here's a brief photo overview of the weekend.

Instructors working together: One goal is to build on synergy and capitalize on shared experience in teaching.
