The Conference

This conference aims to bring together local and international teachers, learners and researchers to share their knowledge and experiences through the findings of original research, workshops and snapshots of pedagogy that show innovative techniques in teaching EFL/ESL and motivating students. It will focus on the design of strategies that promote students using English to communicate for real-life meaningful purposes and current advances in the use of multimedia and the importance of making teaching explicit. There will be a sharing of practices that engage students in developing the four-macro skills and the specific areas of vocabulary, grammar and cohesion in writing. Our conference prides itself on being the conference with a difference by creating opportunities for participants to embark on a learning journey, interact with keynotes and add value to their experience through engaging in professional conversation both during and after the course.
