THT 2023 in the Kyrgyz Republic

Balanced Approaches to Language Teaching and Learning

This year (2023) will be the 15th anniversary of THT Kyrgyzstan and, as we emerge from the pandemic, we are excited at the prospect of extending our activities to the region of Naryn. We expect our seminars to commence in Bishkek working with the FORUM English Language Teachers’ Association of Kyrgyzstan on Saturday, September 9th. We will travel to the mountainous Naryn region to work with FORUM there, before returning to Bishkek for our main university seminars on the 15th and 16th. Delegates can participate in all of the program or part of the program, according to their availability.

The theme for this year is Balanced Approaches to Language Teaching and Learning. The following is our call for presentations:
