  1. We are a small group that have been teaching Arabic in London for the last 20 years ,at st Nicholas preparatory school in London. We are very interested in e learning ,as we have the positive experience of our teaching years but we are struggling to keep up with integrating the new digital techniques , we wish there were short affordable bite size workshops of language learning technologies to help us integrate our experience with the new technologies .
