President’s Welcome

Dear Friends,

2016 promises to be a special year for several reasons. The big news is that our parent association  IATEFL UK celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year, a remarkable achievement for a truly progressive organisation serving the ELT community worldwide for half a century. As an Associate Member, IATEFL Chile will be promoting the programme of global events (such as free webinars with leading ELT experts) which IATEFL UK has planned to mark this historic year. Please do follow our social media posts for more information.

This year IATEFL Chile brings you our XIV International Conference which will be held at Universidad San Sebastián (Sede Bellavista) on 22-23 July. So far we have two giants of ELT confirmed; Scott Thornbury and Jeremy Harmer, who will be coming to share their wisdom and experience over the two days. In the coming months we expect to confirm several more big names and will be launching the Call for Papers as usual in March/April.

 

Plenty to look forward to then, if this is your first visit to these pages please do browse around to find out more about how we serve the ELT community in Chile, and do stay tuned for important forthcoming announcements and information soon!
