TEACHING KIDS, TEENAGERS AND ADULT STUDENTS

“Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace”
Confucius

AIMS OF THE CONFERENCE


The aim of this Second ELT Conference is to accompany teachers in their professional growth and help them give their lessons the spark that might be missing due to routine or lack of motivation. Let’s start 2018 gathering ideas from experts and also from colleagues since we are certain that English teachers all around Argentina deliver wonderful classes, highly appreciated by students and these experiences remain concealed in the confines of their classrooms. We invite colleagues from Mendoza and other provinces to submit proposals for workshops that will be presented in concurrent sessions on Friday from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
