Join us for our annual Spring Conference. This year's theme is "Languacultures and ELT". Meet with fellow professionals to learn about the ways in which our field is constantly changing and growing.
The President of TESOL International Association, Dr. Andy Curtis, will be the opening plenary speaker. His talk is entitled Languaculture in the Language Classroom
Although the notion of ‘languaculture’ is not new, as the term has been in use for at least 20 years, it has been talked about more in recent years, especially in relation to language teaching and learning. We will, then, look at the impact of ‘languaculture’ in language classrooms.
