ALL London

We are the London branch of the national  Association for Language Learning. (ALL)  See our website for full details and join the Yahoo mflresources group which we moderate for on-going discussion and sharing.

We organise regular London-based events throughout the year for local members to encourage close and sustainable networking between  people.  We are inclusive!  Although we strongly encourage people to join ALL which supports work done at a national level,  our events are open to all those who care about language learning, and we love it when people join us from other parts of the country (or the world!)

Our local events  complement events organised at a national level.   An enthusiastic and lively committee plans the  events  as shown by the online diary.  Please  contact us for further information in any way which suits you best.
