Presentation Description

Thanks WSPA for this invitation.My first visit to London was 9 yrs. ago and my language was still so bad. My children's said “Dad, please, write & read, but, by Good sake, not improvise !” I always said the same apology: I never study English, I do by my own. I hope excuses my mistakes in this small introduction of the AW issue in my country.
