Kyrgyzstan 2016 Conference, Seminars & Workshops - The Social Nature of Language, Teaching and Learning


The dates for the THT Kyrgyzstan 2016 Conference, Seminar & Workshop Series have been confirmed. We will conduct four separate events from September 7 - 16 in the capital Bishkek and the cities of Osh and Jalal-Abad.


The first event is a two-day (Sept. 8th - 9th) conference at Osh Pedagogical Institute of Humanities in the southern part of the country. This will be the third time that THT will be taking its seminars and workshops in Kyrgyzstan outside the capital. We will then conduct a one-day seminar in Jalal-Abad (Sept. 10) for teachers who cannot travel to Osh. After returning to Bishkek, we will hold the Seventh Annual THT in Kyrgyzstan at Bishkek Humanities University from September 14th to 15th.  Concurrently, we will conduct a mini workshop for the Association of Japanese Language Teachers in Kyrgyzstan. Finally, we will again work with the Kyrgyzstan English Language Teachers' Association (FORUM) for a one-day conference on September 16th.
