    The call for speakers is open until 20 June and we'd love to hear from you! We're interested in practical 45-minute workshops that can be readily used in our classrooms. You can submit your proposal here: https://ska2016kosice.wordpress.com/call-for-speakers/.

    As last year, this years conference will run 4 concurrent sections in the following areas: Teaching YLs, Teaching teens & adults, Using drama in ELT, and Using ICT in ELT.

    Our plenaries will reflect both our sections of interest (YL, teens/adults, drama, and ICT) as well the theme we have chosen for this year: Mind the Gap - Connecting Cultures in ELT. As foreign language teachers and educators, we are in the unique position of being able to provide young people with the space and language to communicate across cultures, to facilitate understanding and acceptance among all our students. This - as well as gaining new ELT ideas - is what we want to delve into at this year's conference.

    Our own Zuzana Strakova (associate professor at the Institute for British and American Studies, Faculty of Arts, Presov University, Slovakia) will be giving a plenary as well as sharing her expertise on teaching young learners in a 90-minute workshop. The other plenaries are to be announced soon.
