WELCOME FROM THE CONFERENCE CHAIRS
Announcing the First TESOL Kuwait International Conference
Dear Colleagues, Members, and Supporters of TESOL Kuwait,
We are pleased to announce that TESOL Kuwait has been launched and that we are officially recognized by TESOL International as an affiliate of that estimable organization. We wish to thank all who have dedicated their time and effort to this endeavor as well as to the planning and realizing of our open meetings which offer opportunities for professional development to the Kuwait community and beyond.
Our commitment continues with the announcement of the first TESOL Kuwait International Conference to be held 14-16 November 2013. The annual TESOL Kuwait Conference offers English language teaching professionals the opportunity for professional development in the field. Participants exchange ideas and practices, keep abreast of current trends, foster their professional networks, receive mentoring on research projects, review the latest books and professional resources, and learn about advocacy efforts in their community and around the world.
Our theme is Language Learning: Promoting the Practical. Our sessions will focus on the concrete: methods, activities, and insights designed to enhance your effectiveness as an educator.
Dates/Venues: The Pre-Conference will be on Thursday, 14 November 2013 at the Australian College of Kuwait. The TESOL Kuwait Conference will be on 15-16 November at Gulf University for Science and Technology, Mubarak Al-Abdullah Area/West Mishref, Kuwait.
Registration: Registration is required for participation in the conference. You should register in advance using the form on this website. In regard to Pre-conference sessions, because spaces on these courses are limited, you are advised to register early to avoid disappointment.
Payment: Payment is required for participation in the conference. Cash payment may be made in advance at the Foundation Program Unit reception desk (2nd Floor, Room W1-255) at Gulf University for Science and Technology from 8:00 Am to 5:00 PM. Please bring your receipt on the day of the conference. Payment may also be made on the day of the conference. An Earlybird discount of 5KD is offered for payments on or before 5 October. As with other TESOL conferences, pre-conference sessions and the conference dinner require separate payment of fees in addition to the fee for the main conference.
On behalf of TESOL Kuwait's Conference Organizing Committee we look forward to welcoming you all to the 2013 Conference.
