BabelNews: passing the torch

Hi everyone,

So as many of you know I am a PhD student at the University of Toronto.  I will be finished with school in August and I have accepted a job at Carleton University in Ottawa, so I'm going to be moving to Ottawa in the third week of August.  Since it would be essentially impossible for me to run TorontoBabel from Ottawa, I will be "passing the torch" to two TorontoBabel regulars to take over all of the organization and hosting of the group.

Many of you already know Eduardo Costa ( and Anna Shalaginova (, since they have been coming to Babel for a long time.  They will become the new leaders of the group after Tuesday, August 14th, which will be my last Babel.

I would recommend that you talk to Eduardo and Anna so that they know who you are and let them know what your language goals are so that they can help you to meet people who speak the languages you want to practice.

If you have any questions about the change you can email me at [address removed] (until mid-August when Eduardo or Anna will be answering that email address!).

Anyway, thank you so much to all of you for coming out to Babel and making it a great success.  I'm going to miss you all very much; but, I still have a few weeks left to enjoy the group and I hope to see you there!
