The I teach Kids & Teens Conference –empowering teachers to empower students, welcomes proposals for lectures and workshops that address issues related to the teaching of English to young learners and teens.

The aim of the conference is to bring together ELT academics, researchers, materials developers, and teacher trainers to exchange research findings, perspectives, ideas, and experiences, on teaching, learning, and assessment. This may be your opportunity to share your knowledge and expertise with hundreds of people in the ELT management field.

It is the responsibility of the Selecting Committee to evaluate all proposals and select a high quality variety of lectures that will meet the needs of a diverse audience.


The Selecting Committee will review all abstracts and will select those which...

a. have a direct relationship to the conference and are relevant to the audience.
b. have a clear and precise organization.
c. guarantee the Committee that the speaker knows the subject.
d. guarantee the Committee that the presenter has extensive experience and success in conducting teacher-training seminars.
e. are complete, edited and free of typographical mistakes.
f. are not used to promote or sell the products or services of the speaker or others.


The standard length for presentations will be of 75 minutes.
While the assumption is that presentations will be largely speaker-centered, presenters are nonetheless encouraged to include and involve their audience, presenting in such a way as to stimulate the interest of the audience. For this reason we strongly discourage the reading aloud of written papers.

Organizing Committee
  Before submitting your proposal, please read the notes below:

1. Individuals may not submit or appear on more than two proposals, either as lead or co-presenters.

3. If you or your organization is found to promote or sell programs, products, or services (including independent or freelance consulting services) during your academic presentation, you will be fined with $300 and won´t be invited for future events. This policy is consistent with our understanding of what participants expect when they attend the Annual Conference—namely that they are not confronted with commercialism and sales pitches, however subtle, in sessions they choose to attend.
4. The content of the presentation should not change significantly after the proposal is accepted.
5. The Organizing Committee cannot guarantee a minimum or maximum number of registered participants in any presentation. Nor can any presentation be limited to the number of participants.
6. Upon acceptance of the proposal, proposal owners will be requested to submit a handout.

The handout should be submitted electronically only (by e-mail) according to the specifications given upon acceptance of the proposal.
9. All presenters and co presenters must register, pay registration fee and send a complete Registration Form before September 9, 2011.
