This is one of the great disadvantages of living in an area running on PST, I am far too early to participate in everything. I didn’t catch it in any of the other announcements, but will the talks be recorded in any way to be able to see them later?

I’d also love to know as 7am GMT is the middle of the night for me too.

Hi Richard! I think the UTalk Multilingual Quiz is missing in the schedule in this post. The quiz is at 2 PM GMT.

Thank you Richard for inviting Raising Multilinguals LIVE to organise a panel on the Polyglot Conference platform. Ute Limacher-Riebold, Tetsu Yung and myself are excited to run the panel with yourself, Heather Kozioł, Shereen Sharaan and Thomas H Bak to mark this important day!
