upcoming ELT conferences in Taiwan

The following are a few upcoming ELT conferences in Taiwan well worth your attention.

On March 10-12, Ming Chuan University will host the 2011 International Conference and Workshop on TEFL & Applied Linguistics, which will feature some important names such as Jack Richards and Leo Van Lier. The conference will also include a presentation by Rose Senior, who wrote the unforgettable Cambridge University Press title, The Experience of Language Teaching.

The 2011 International Conference on English Professional Communication and Instructional Technology will take place at National Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences on May 6th. One of the main speakers is John Flowerdew, whose book Second Language Listening (co-authored with Lindsay Miller) is one of my favorite books on teaching listening.

National Taichung University of Education will hold the 28th International Conference on English Teaching and Learning in R.O.C. on May 14 and 15. Rod Ellis and James Dean Brown will be plenary speakers.
