Kyrgyzstan 2014 Seminar ‘Teaching and Learning Languages in Context’
The dates for the THT Kyrgyzstan 2014 Seminar Series have been confirmed. We will conduct three separate seminars from September 8 – 13 in the capital Bishkek and the provincial region of Talas Oblast. The first event is a two-day (Sept. 8th – 9th) teacher training workshop and seminar in Talas Oblast, held in conjunction with the FORUM English Language Teachers’ Association, Kyrgyzstan. This will be the first time that THT will be taking its seminars in Kyrgyzstan outside the capital. We will then conduct a one-day seminar for secondary school and college teachers in the capital Bishkek (Sept. 10th), again with the help of the FORUM English Language Teachers’ Association. Following that, we will hold the Sixth Annual THT in Kyrgyzstan at Bishkek Humanities University from September 11th to 12th. Finally, we will conduct a one-day lecture and workshop series for the Association of Japanese Language Teachers in Kyrgyzstan on September 13th. If you have a Masters Degree or its equivalent in TESOL or a related field, have experience presenting at an academic conference, and are intrigued by sharing your ideas and expertise in Central Asia, contact delegate leader Roger Palmer (firstname.lastname@example.org) with at least three proposals. Please be sure to indicate your available dates so that we can pencil you in for the relevant seminars. You can also submit online via the THT website (www.tht-japan.org). Come join us!
