Participating in international conferences is one of the most important duties of the members of Samara Academic Consultancy Center. This October is marked with the annual gathering “NATE – Umbrella” which took place in Kursk. For three days all participants were busy with their projects trying to improve different spheres of EFL education.
     Our collegues, Svetlana Menshenina and Elena Agrikova, participated in EAP Special Interest Group along with such highly-skilled professionals as S. Suchkova, E. Bazanova, S. Reztsova, I. Titarenko, A. M. Ferraro and many others who are keen on academic writing. The work in this SIG was extremely fruitful – in the end Russian Consortium of Academic Writing Centers was presented. SACC will take active part in it – our members announced the publication of the manual for establishing the writing centers created by E. Smith in the nearest future. Moreover, this June is going to be an earthy paradise for all academic writing lovers as the conference and summer school will be held in Samara, organized by Modern Languages and Professional Communication Dept., Professional Development Center and SACC.
