is pleased to invite you to its Jubilee conference
which celebrates SPELTA’s 20th anniversary since its foundation!
Saint Petersburg English Language Teachers Association SPELTAwas founded twenty years ago to bring together ELT practitioners and linguists working at different education levels and in different contexts. One of our primary objectives is to encourage specialists in EFL methodology and communication, teachers and textbook writers, as well as interpreters and translators to share experience and discuss ideas with colleagues both from Russia and the English-speaking world.
In keeping with the spirit of marking milestones, the theme of the conference “English Language in the Modern World: past, present, future” is both general and diachronic in orientation featuring the talks that make use of explorations of how English language is studied, taught and used in the modern world.
Through various formats such as pre-conference seminars, panel discussions, paper talks, workshops, and poster presentations, we invited the participants to share their expertise in the following areas: Intercultural Issues, Translation and Interpreting, Literature and Text studies, E-learning, Teaching at Schools / Universities, Teaching Academic English \ ESP, Teaching Techniques and Assessment,etc.
