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


The dates for the THT Kyrgyzstan 2017 Seminar Series are from 9/6 to 9/15. We welcome your participation in the whole program, or you may choose between Osh or Bishkek. (We can be flexible for those who wish to arrive in Kyrgyzstan late and leave early in order to keep other appointments.)


Provisional details of the Kyrgyz seminars in September: - We will be running three one-day seminars in the provincial city of Osh from September 7th - 9th. Osh is a beautiful Silk Road city in the desert.
- The 9th Annual THT Seminar at Bishkek Humanities University (BHU) is scheduled for September 12th to 13th. Bishkek, the capital, is a green, European-style city with wide, tree-lined boulevards. The BHU seminar will include sessions for language teachers and teachers who are training their students to become language teachers.
Those interested may also present in Japanese to the Association of Japanese Language Teachers at BHU.
- There will be a one-day seminar for secondary school and college teachers in Bishkek (September 14th) in collaboration with the FORUM English Language Teachers' Association.
