Conference Notes: Linguistics and Education

Over the last year or so I have given papers at a number of conferences throughout the region. These conferences have primarily involved discussions within TESOL and Applied Linguistics but have also crossed-over into the related realms of general education, lifelong learning and learning disorders. There have been some great presentations at the conferences I’ve attended (..and some not-so-great!). And I’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many knowledgeable and wonderful people within my profession.

I’ll go through my files and pull out some notes from the conferences listed below, and if you want any more information than that I provide… please let me know Anyway, the conferences I have notes from that I’ll post about include: The Second International Conference on Language and Communication, Bangkok, Thailand, 2010 The 18th PAC-KOTESOL International Conference, Seoul, Korea, 2010 The Second Asian Conference on Education, Osaka, Japan, 2010 The 2011 Winter International Conference on Linguistics in Seoul, Korea, 2011 Others I will be giving papers at over the next few months include: The 2011 KOTESOL National Conference, Daejeon, Korea The Fourth International Conference of English as Lingua Franca, Hong Kong The 9th Asia TEFL International Conference, Seoul, Korea The 2011 Korea English Education Society International Conference, Cheongju,...
