Our deep thankfulness to the TEACHERS who attended the 2014 Conference on Friday 12 and on Saturday 13, making this IV CONFERENCE an event where there were a mixture of networking,  colleagues who met after many years, the opportunities to talk to the speakers, and above all, the starting of new and more SpecialInterest Groups, new friendship, starting of Projects which really implies new horizons awaiting for professionals in ELT.

IATEFL PERU is a non-profit organisation , a self funded one , legally registered in Registros Publicos . It is not easy to run an Association  , however  not impossible , all the Team does their best to make innovative events happen .
We would like to express our deep thanks and appreciation for your attendance , enthusiasm and active participation !
