Meeting Description: We're very pleased to announce the 1st European English for Healthcare conference to be held in Locarno, Canton Ticino, Switzerland.

This specialised ESP conference aims to bring together teachers of English for healthcare at the tertiary level and those delivering in-service courses from Switzerland and beyond. The event will provide a platform for the presentation of new ideas, approaches and materials for this increasingly important branch of English for Specific Purposes and should also be of great interest to trainers working in other areas of ESP both at tertiary level and in the workplace.
