The 2nd International English Language Teaching Conference

ELT Profession: Challenges and Prospects
May 2-5, 2006

English Language Teaching Department
Eastern Mediterranean University
Famagusta, North Cyprus

Deadling 7 November 2005

We have all reasons to assume that the 2nd International ELT Conference is a key event in 
the English teaching and research calendar in the field. First of all, Eastern 
Mediterranean University is an accepted center to train English teachers not only for the 
region with about half a dozen universities with the English as a medium of instruction 
but also for educational institutions of various levels. Second of all, we are in the 
region where cultures meet to cater the global culture whose language is English. Finally, 
we are in a place where in early May you can continue talking about the recent 
developments taking place in language teaching even after the sessions lying on the golden 
beaches just a kilometer away from the campus. 

We believe that the conference will provide access to distinguished experts in the field 
of TEFL, and offer varied opportunities for discussion and sharing of ideas to promote the 
development of and research into the practice and theory of English language education. 
Thus, as the perceived local challenges are not locally-bound any more, the only way to 
cope with them is to join our hands.   

We are working hard to arrange a pleasant stay in our city and to prepare an interesting 
and useful conference and waiting for your contribution, which will add to the prestige of 
the event. Papers, panels and posters on the conference themes are welcome.
