The 20TH Annual PERU TESOL Convention

Dates: July 31st to August 2nd, 2012

Venue: Centro de Idiomas de la “Universidad Cesar Vallejo”Chiclayo, Lambayeque – PeruTheme: "Speaking Up For English”The XX Peru TESOL annual conference will focus on the importance of speaking - improving the teaching and learning of spoken English in the classroom; speaking up for English within our academic communities, and speaking out to promote English in Peru. How can our students learn to improve speaking skills in the English classroom? How can our schools better incorporate English throughout the curriculum? What is the current role of English learning in Peru and how can English be more widely promoted?




We would really appreciate your help and participation in the following Survey:Use of the learners’ own-language in the English language classroom: a surveyTo what extent do English language teachers make use of the learners’ own language in the English language classroom? Alternatively, to what extent do teachers maintain an 'English-only' classroom? Do teachers allow or encourage your learners to use their own language in class? If so, why and in what kind of ways? And if not, again, why? Northumbria University and the Open University in the UK, in conjunction with the British Council, are carrying out a survey into the use of the learners' own language in the English language classroom. The survey asks teachers about their experiences of, and views about, the use of learners’ own language in their teaching. We are interested in finding out what English teachers do (or don’t do), the activities they use, and the reasons for this. The survey is therefore for English language teachers. It should take approximately 20 minutes to complete and answers are completely confidential. (Note: ‘English language teachers’ is a deliberately broad criteria for taking part in the project and includes, for example, those who teach EFL, ESL, EAP and so on; primary, secondary and tertiary level teachers;  those who both teach language and train teachers, who teach and manage etc.).

The survey is available online at: further information about the project, visit:

you would prefer to complete the survey as an e-mail attachment, contact Alison Twiner ( or Graham Hall (

Transform the Way we Teach‏

Dear Teacher

With the incorporation of new technologies into the teaching and learning process, teachers may wonder whether blended educational experiences* really enrich student learning opportunities and have an impact on learning outcomes.

This February Pearson brings you the chance to join Christina M Cavage, Professor of English as a Second Language at Savannah College of Art and Design, in a discussion where she will highlight the benefits of this approach.

Transforming the Way you Teach

Enrich student learning opportunities and keep instructors better informed on student performance by combining technology and traditional instruction.

February, Tuesday 28th

We look forward to meeting you online!


*blended educational experiences combine online learning tasks with face-to-face instruction.
