TESOL Symposium on Dual Language Education:
Teaching and Learning Two Languages in the EFL Setting

Bogazici University
Istanbul, Turkey
Friday, September 23, 2005

Dual language educational programs promote bilingualism by using both a primary, local language and English as media of
instruction. This symposium will explore ways in which such programs can be developed and implemented in EFL contexts
to advance

native language proficiency
academic achievement
proficiency in the foreign language
This TESOL symposium offers English language teaching professionals an exciting opportunity to learn from and interact
with leading experts in the field. The speakers will share their work and research on dual language education to help
participants develop insights and skills. In the morning, each speaker will present highlights of their work and
perspectives on dual language education.

Each speaker will then lead an afternoon breakout session. During the closing session, another leading expert will
summarize the topic, and the speakers will interact with the participants in a question and answer wrap-up. TESOL will
publish and mail the speakers' papers and final proceedings to participants after the symposium.

The symposium will be held at Assembly Hall (Albert Long Hall) on the South Campus of Bogazici University in Istanbul,
Turkey. The Bosphorus and the historical castle of Rumelihisar border the South Campus to the east.
