eSense 25th Jubilee Souvenir_2015

The very first SENSE Conference, held in celebration of our 25th Jubilee, took place at the historic Paushuize in Utrecht on 14 November 2015.

This special issue contains three photo albums of the successful event.

Scattered between the photos are our members’ impressions of the day, collected from our group on Facebook and the forum.

There are two accounts of what it was like to be there, and to round things off, we chronicle SENSE’s important ‘firsts’ as a Netherlands-based Anglophone society for language professionals.
