Finally, finally (!!) I am getting around to merging the sound files from my sessions at the ICT Links into Languages conference with the PowerPoint slideshows that accompanied them. At first glance the slidecasting process on http://www.slideshare.net/ seems horrendously complicated. However, once you have a play and get into the flow (play audio, work out where the end of the first slide is, move the marker there, click on the next slide - repeat process...) it is really simple. Proving once again that taking the time to become familiar with an online tool takes the uncertainty away and facilitates future use. Here are my presentations.

The Croque Monsieur Challenge continues...
Having had the opportunity to travel to Bruges recently the Croque Monsieur (/Madame) Challenge has had a rebirth. Let's get down to business:
Location: Bruges 7 April 2011
Comments: Hmmm, no bechamel sauce, no wonderful after taste of good French cheese. The salad was 80's -esque and uninspiring. Its redeeming feature was the presentation of the chips. However, being famous for "frites" I was disappointed after the build up. Conclusion: this was a dressed up toasted sandwich at best. The search for the perfect Croque Monsieur experience to match that of Calais back in 2000/1 continues...
