May I hereby encourage you to support this conference series for the professionalisation of English Language Teaching in Cambodia and more broadly in the Indo-Chinese region. To encourage quality regional presentations, there will be an abstract competition for the presentation that is most relevant for an Indo-Chinese audience. Details of this competition will be announced within the month in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. If you live and work in this region, please spread the word amongst colleagues whom you believe would benefit from participation in this professional development.
