“The Symbolic Power of English" Medellin, Colombia

Teachers and people involved in EFL teaching and learning in Colombia are invited to the 44th annual ASOCOPI conference. “The Symbolic Power of English: Implications for Colombian Educational Settings” will be the main, but not...

...only topic in this year’s version which takes place October 8-11, 2009 in Medellin, Colombia.

In general, themes will be related to topics like:

Applied Linguistics to EFL
Language Policy
ELT Methodology
Teacher Education
Curriculum Design and Evaluation
Foreign and Second Language Acquisition

This conference has a focus on those working - or planning to work - in Columbia. It is too late to submit a proposal for a prsentation, but for further information, you can email them at asocopi@yahoo.com.

ASOCOPI is a non-profit professional organization whose mission is to contribute to the ESL community and its influence in Columbia. They welcome contributions to their newsletter.

Later this spring and summer I'll be hosting some contests where I'll be giving away books and CDs. Stay tuned here - and send me some of your suggestions for great books, music or professional gatherings that help with language learning!

My best to you,


Listen, read and speak. Make your new language your own.

In June I want to welcome readers to present thoughts on the ideal job. What do you most want to do? Where would you like to be? Who would you want to work with? Does anyone have an ideal work schedule?
