We are thrilled to announce that Rachel Paling will be the first plenary speaker at the 22nd ELTA Conference! Her talk, titled “Going Beyond the Frontiers of English Language Learning” will explore the past, present, and future of English language learning in the face of technological advancements such as automation, AI tools, robots, and machine learning.
The British Council recently published research on “The Future of English: Global Perspectives”, which confirms that English will remain the world’s most widely spoken language over the next decade and that teachers will continue to play a crucial role in English learning. However, what about 25 or 50 years from now? What new frontiers lie ahead, and how can educators go beyond these to enhance language learning using both internal and external resources?
