ALT Agorà – December 14, 2022 – Register Now!

December is the last month of the year. The perfect time to stop and go over the things we have learned and achieved in the classroom, but also to set new goals for the new year.

In June we tried hosting three breakout rooms with no main speakers and gave you the opportunity to simply talk and connect with each other. This time, we will do the same, with no main speakers and lots of time for you to exchange ideas.

But instead of doing this on Zoom, this time we will use a new platform. It’s called You can check the website to have a better idea of how it works, but in a very simple way, it’s like a Zoom session where everyone can move around freely. You will be able to join one of the three breakout rooms or chat one-to-one with other people in separate areas. Complete freedom.

To use this space, you won’t have to register or create any new accounts. No additional software to download. We recommend using a desktop device (windows, apple, Chromebook) to enjoy the entire experience. Users logging in from smartphones and tablets will still be able to join but can only move between breakout rooms, so you won’t have the opportunity of chatting freely outside of those.

Due to the need to set up the room, we will send out the link to the space the day before the event (or on the same day). So please check your inbox.

Well, then, hurry up and register using the link below! See you soon!

When: Wednesday, December 14, 2022, @7:30 pm JST

How to join: you will receive the link the day before the event (or on the same day!).
