TESOL Symposium on English Language Teaching in Resource-Challenged Contexts

Sofitel Teranga Dakar Hotel
Dakar, Senegal
December 16-17, 2005

Given the growing role of English as a global language, English language teaching (ELT) affects economic, political,
and social development in countries worldwide.  Sub-Saharan Africa, a region with tremendous linguistic diversity,
offers challenges as well as opportunities for ELT.  Common challenges include coping with overcrowded classrooms,
managing with a lack of resources, and designing appropriate and relevant materials.

This TESOL symposium provides an opportunity for English language teaching professionals in Sub-Saharan Africa to learn
from and interact with leading experts in the field.
