Lino Bessonart 

has been one of the most enthusiast Squeakers in Uruguay.

He is the fellow who spoke to us in Porto Alegre while demonstrating,  from Uruguay,  the distance training technique he uses to reach those who live far away from important population centers.

He is the one many of us have to thank for his spanish Etoys training videos.

He is the one,  together with María Méndez who will be conducting the Etoys sessions today during the event that will take place in Montevideo today.

I noticed he became Uruguay´s Squeaker No. 76, leaving our country only 9 squeakers away from becoming No. 1 in the world!

Lino wrote a very nice paragraph when signing up as a Squeaker.

Unfortunately the automatic English translation didn´t come up well.

This is my attempt to improve on it:

Lino Bessonart de Ciudad de la Costa, Uruguay (desde 2008) 2010-oct-14
Cuando conocí etoys en las primeras xo que llegaron a Uruguay fue como abrir una puerta a un universo inacabable de posibilidades de aprender y ayudar a aprender a los niños de mi país. [GT]

"When I became acquainted with Etoys, through the first XOs that arrived in Uruguay, it was like opening a door to an endless universe of possibilities for learning for helping the children of my country learn."

Thanks Lino.

Best wishes to María,  to you and to all participants in today´s event!

Received the notification the event is "sold out"-
