Cambodia to host 9th Annual CamTESOL

The 9th Annual CamTESOL Conference on English Language Teaching (ELT) in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on 23-24 February 2013 will welcome over 1500 delegates, triple the number when the conference was established in 2004.

This growth sees CamTESOL now recognised as a leading ELT conference in Asia, attracting some 500 international participants from 30 countries.

The increasing numbers of regional delegates from Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines are joining traditionally strong numbers from Australia, Japan and the US for the 9th CamTESOL and over 600 abstracts are now being considered by the CamTESOL Program Committee.

The 1000 Cambodian ELT professionals expected to attend reflects the flourishing national ELT industry and a significant demand for English skills and study abroad options.

IDP Education is working with the ELT industry stakeholders which include universities and English language training institutions across Cambodia to deliver one of the leading ELT conferences in the Asia region.

The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport and the US State Department are among the two biggest supporters in making the CamTESOL accessible to English teachers from across the country to attend.

That CamTESOL has grown to more than 1500 delegates and speakers in such a short time is testament to both the strength of the industry in the region and the excitement of the host city.

Continuing a tradition of hosting prestigious academic speakers, the 2013 CamTESOL will welcome Professor Paul Nation (Professor Emeritus of Applied Linguistics, School of Linguistics and Applied Language Studies, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand), and Dr. Richmond Stroupe (Chair of the Master’s Program in International Language Education: TESOL, Soka University, Japan) as plenary speakers.  

More information about CamTESOL or how to get a sponsor to attend is available at www.camtesol.org
