Two mor questions, please Oct 18, 2006

Thank you very much, Jerzy! You were very quick with your answer!
But I still two questions: does it take place at the same hotel as the conference?
And roughly when is it going to end?
Thank you very much!
Helena

Flight Oct 18, 2006

Sorry for being a pain, Jerzy, but I have a plane to catch, so the less time is spent on breaks, the better!

The same hotel Oct 18, 2006

We have a room in the same hotel, where the Conference is beeing held.
As you can see from the time schedule, I plan an open edn, but I do not expect us to come to an end later than 7 pm.
I´m still not very sure, if we will need 2 hours for the basics, so maybe I will shorten the first part to only 1 hour. This would mean the coffe break and the lunch one hour earlier. I shall keep you posted.

Flight Oct 18, 2006

19.30 from Edinburgh Airport - I think you'd originally said the workshop would finish sooner than 7, so I went ahead and booked my non-changeable flight... Shame as it means I'll have to miss part of a training I badly need!

That´s why we shall start already at 9 am Oct 18, 2006

Imagine, 7 pm are 10 hours! This is I think the absolute end of our learning capacity for one day. And this is an open end option. I do not want to make a clear cut at 5 pm, but it is possible. This would mean 6 hours training. After all I think there will be a lot of questions, and if we start to playing Q&A rounds in between, your problem will be bigger. So what I think you will possibly miss are some questions and answers after 5 pm.

As per my opinion... Oct 18, 2006

...these breaks are very important, as we really need time off: I don't think anybody is being able to learn, and learn and leanr for hours and hours with no breaks!!
Thank you for all your comments, Jerzy!
Helena

@Horizons Oct 18, 2006

Hi!
And if you leave in London, why don't you stay until the end and take the train back??? (If you need it so badly, as you say...?)
Regards,
Helena

Please don´t panic :-) Oct 18, 2006

Look at this modified time schedule:
Break times:
10:30-11:00: coffee break
1:00-2:00: lunch in the restaurant between
4:00-4:30: coffee break
We shorten the Basics to 1,5 hrs and still keep the end open

Panic? Panic? Who panics???? ;o)) Oct 18, 2006

... so now it seems like the three blocks are going to be shorter -all of them!!! What a pity!!!! ((( (As there are no so many and good trainings for Trados...!)
I stay overnight in Edinburgh - No planes to catch for me at the day.
Regards,
Helena

@Horizons: Sorry not... Oct 18, 2006

...leave but live!
If I would need a training that hard, I would not hesitate to take the train back ("The last train to London" -was a very nice song at the 80's! By E.L.O.) ;o))
Regards,
Helena
