I need to thank all the folks who kindly let me use their voices and images in this video.

And I’d also like to mention something that troubles me about it. I hunted hard for audio and video materials and maybe I was looking in the wrong places, but I found no sources with non-native speaker (NNS) voices. It seems a bit absurd to have no NNS speaker voices in a video on ELF. But actually I think it might reflect the nature of our industry. NSs seem to get videoed more than NNSs! Perhaps we could rethink that?

But anyway, please put this date in your diaries! 14.00 (CET) on 7 February 2011. Click here to check your local time: Local time. Hope to see you there!

UPDATE: For those who cannot access youtube, you can also find the video at Vimeo here: http://vimeo.com/19269725
