Timișoara English Teachers’ Association are pleased to invite you to participate in the
16th National RATE Conference
SOMETHING OLD? SOMETHING NEW IN ELT?
Colegiul Național de Artă „Ion Vidu”, Timisoara, 6th – 8th November 2015
Call for papers
In a fast-paced constantly changing world ELT practices have become more and more complex, eclectic and diverse varying from traditional approaches to the communicative ones .
Is there an ideal balance between traditional methods, modern strategies and technology? For each situation there are different perspectives, different solutions (last-minute ideas, in case technology fails you). Is there a perfect method? To what extent do we combine methods? How eclectic should a teacher be? Is technology always the answer? Are drills to be forgotten? Do we exercise? Do we practise? Can we really communicate effectively?
We invite you to reflect and join the conference in the hope of giving and finding answers. Exchanging ideas and sharing expertise broaden one’s horizon and enrich a teacher’s knowledge in a worldwide ELT community.
Come to the conference to make a difference in English Language Teaching!
