CATESOL 2016 has ended
Thank you for attending CATESOL 2016 in San Diego!

We appreciate your feedback, which we’ll use in planning 2017 in Santa Clara.

You can view the whole conference schedule by the day and also search for sessions and events by speaker, title, session type, level, and even room! Maps of the Town & Country and the Exhibit Hall are in the menu. You can create and save your personalized conference schedule by creating a free login in sched.org, but you do not need to create a login to use this site! This site - and uploaded materials - will remain available long after the conference.

David Burke

Slangman Publishing
Los Angeles
Being a polyglot, David Burke was all too familiar with the confusion that can come from not knowing a language’s slang or idioms. His love of language has, in part, led him to write and publish a range of books on this topic. His career has included a regular segment on Voice of America (the broadcast network of the United States government), multiple appearances on CNN, and BBC on-air host for The Academy Awards as he explained all the new slang coming from American movies. In addition, he has created and stars in a children’s TV show, “Hey Wordy!” introducing children to the world of foreign languages and cultures in an environment of music, animation, and magic.
