Meeting Description:

CamTESOL - the annual Cambodian ELT conference is one of Asia's best- kept secrets. This ELT conference series is the premier professional development forum for teachers of English in Cambodia. It is a significant international conference in the region that attracts roughly 1,200 participants, including over 300 international delegates from more than 30 countries around the world. CamTESOL was established and has been supported by IDP Education (Cambodia) since 2005. Since its establishment, the conference has gained the support of the government and has also gained strong support from universities, languages schools, local and international NGOs, and the business community in Cambodia and overseas.

CamTESOL is designed to be practical and of direct benefit to practicing teachers of English. The conference brings together numerous groups of stakeholders from Cambodia and the broader Asian region as well as other international participants and presenters. These include classroom teachers of English, teacher trainees, language school and university administrators, ELT-related individuals and institutions, domestic and international educators, experts, and researchers who wish to network with the Cambodian ELT community.
