The aim of this conference is to provide a forum for academic researchers to interact with practising English teachers and share ideas and experiences, with a view to improving both scientific work and classroom results. All aspects of teaching and learning will be considered, including, but not restricted to:
- individual differences
- methodology and cultural awareness
We invite proposals for paper presentations and teacher workshops. The language of the conference will be English, although presentations in Polish may also be considered. A selection of papers will be published.
