[ELTeCS_PE​RU] Many thanks for your participat​ion at IATELF PERU INTERNATIO​NAL CONFERENCE

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of IATEFL-PERU we want to express our deepest gratitude for your active participation in the two day IATEFL -PERU INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

Our IATEFL-PERU International Conference 2012 had actually two components:

1.Pre-Conference Event: 'Developing Trainers' Skills' July 6th at Universidad de Piura-8.30-16.00.

This academic event was delivered by Penny Ur, Andrew Sheehan and Michael Carrier (British Council-London)

The outcome of the PCE will be a published document which includes Project Proposals.

We are very grateful to Mr. Julio Valladares, Universidad de Piura Language Centre Director, for his dedicated and kind cooperation.


When organising the Trainers' academic event, we did not imagine that most of the trainers would register in the Conference as well.

Being the venue of the Conference at IMACULADA JESUITAS SCHOOL, many of the participants wouldn't make it therefore we decided to rent Reparacion premises for the Opening and on Saturday the Conference took place as agreed before, IMACULADA JESUITAS SCHOOL.

We could not believe that even being 8.30p.m. and Michael Carrier delivering the Closing Plenary, participants were still engaged!

On behalf of the Key-note Speakers, Penny ur, Paul Seligson, Chris Kunz, Michael Carrier, Hugo Romo and Andrew Sheehan let us let you know that they did enjoy delivering their Plenaries and Workshops, and they highlighted the professional and personal qualities of the participants.

We are really grateful to our Workshop Speakers presenting A-1 sessions, as Carmen Caceda mentions in ELTeCS F.B.page, a million thanks to :

Mrs Cecilia Rodrigues, Miss Marlene Reyes, Mrs. Margaret Hawkins(Britanico),Mr.Julio Valladares, Mr.César Klauer, Mr.Jesus Nicho,Mr David Villanueva,Mr Paul Doherty,

Mrs Sandra Mazuelos,Mrs.Marcela Raffo,and the above key note Speakers who also delivered workshops!

ELTeCS Peru has definitely played an important role , and once again we can see the paramount importance of having an English Language Teaching Contacts Scheme in Peru which is actively and professionaly managed, Mr Cesar Klauer: Many thanks, indeed!


We use this word in the ELT arena very often, so do we regarding organisation of events. Starting an Association, organising events is not that easy however if we love and have the adrenaline of geting great speakers as we did this year that maKes us feel like starting organising the next one. We are aware that some things might not have worked as it was programmed but the quality of speakers, national and international ones, the added value which is being offered by the fee 80/ 100 new soles that includes membership and a DVD with all the Conference recorded is making the difference in this event, in our humble opinion.

Yesterday we had a meeting with Michael Carrier, Head of Global Innovations of the British Council in London , and he was delighted with the Conference , therefore he is coming back next year , IATEFL PERU CONFERENCE 2013 will be in July, specific date to be confirmed , and we will have great speakers and the participation of all the Chapters in Peru we have 10.

Our deepest gratiitude, apologies if necessary and all the very best!

See you in the 20th Annual PERU TESOL Convention ' Speaking up for English'-JULY 31ST-August2nd at Cesar Vallejo Language Center-Chiclayo

Leo Marin Manuel Lopez


President Vice-President
