Welcome to the ACAMIS English Language Learners Annual Conference!
The issues related to English Language Learning within our member schools is at the top of the list of concerns about how to integrate increasingly diverse numbers of language speakers into a curriculum based largely on English as the main language of instruction.
We are delighted that two experienced keynote speakers will join us in Tianjin - Tan Huynh from Vientiane International School and Nicola Bourgeois at the NIST International School in Thailand. They will also lead several sessions at this conference, but no conference is complete without the kind of peer expertise that teacher from ACAMIS member schools can provide.
Sincere thank you go to Steve Moody of the International School of Tianjin for hosting this conference and to the ELL Organizing Committee lead by Lori Zhai supported by Andrea Griego, Emma McBride, and Carrie Di.
Finally, be sure to take this opportunity to connect with colleagues from other schools which is an enriching benefit from these gatherings and most of all, enjoy the stimulation!
