The Ateneo Center for English Language Teaching (ACELT) would like to invite you to the upcoming 48th ACELT Bi-Annual Conference with the theme, “ENGLISH IN ASIA: TEACHING A GLOBAL LANGUAGE IN LOCAL CONTEXTS” to be held on September 1, 2012 at the Ateneo de Manila University, Quezon City, Philippines.

This bi-annual conference is a pre-launch of the 11th Asia TEFL International Conference in October 2013 to be co-hosted by the LS, Department of English, Ateneo Center for English Language Teaching (ACELT), Ateneo Language Learning Center (ALLC) and Asia-TEFL.

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Andy Kirkpatrick, Professor in the School of Languages and Linguistics at Griffith University, as Keynote Speaker. Before his Griffith appointment, he served as Foundation Director of the Research Centre for Language Education and Acquisition in Multilingual Societies at the Hong Kong Institute of Education where he was also Chair Professor of English as an International Language. He is an expert in Multilanguage Education and World Englishes.

Over a hundred educators, administrators, trainers, researchers, students, and scholars are expected to participate in the event. The conference aims to provide a venue for the discussion of the place of Philippine English in World Englishes and its implications on our own educational concerns, especially in light of the implementation of the K-12 curriculum.

The conference therefore is an opportune moment for ELT scholars and teachers to exchange ideas that offer a variety of perspectives in language and literature teaching.
