The future of English language teaching

29 October 2015 18:00 - 29 October 2015 21:00 Add to Calendar 29-10-2015 18:00:00 29-10-2015 21:00:00 36 The future of English language teaching Tuke Hall, Regent's University London DD/MM/YYYY

Panel discussion on the challenges facing English language teachers and trainers internationally.

English is now the global language, connecting people around the world, and the way it is taught is changing. Developments in technology are breaking down barriers and opening up new ideas and ways of teaching.

A set of internationally agreed standards for the training of teachers is needed to ensure that qualifications gained locally have currency in all parts of the world.

Join us for a debate involving some highly experienced international academics, both in person and via live video stream. You can follow the event in person or online.


Chair: Julian Kenny, Head of English Language Centre, Regent’s University London
