WriteBetter at Arturo Prat University

On January 11, 2019, we presented WriteBetter to a group of English teachers and students at the conference “Teaching Languages in Multicultural Contexts”. This presentation took place in the main auditorium of Arturo Prat University, located in the city of Iquique, in the north of Chile. 

The presentation lasted 1 hour, in which we could talk about the linguistic foundations of Writebetter and how it could be a contribution in the English classroom. Some people in the room asked interesting questions and gave us positive feedback to continue working on the development of our software. 

Among the attendees, there were some foreign teachers, such as C.P. Gause (PhD), professor and Chair of the Department of Educational Leadership and Counseling at Southeast Missouri State University.
