NEW CONFERENCE UPDATES CONFIRMED
ACAMIS 2022 ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS (ELL) CONFERENCE
 

We are happy to inform you that our kind host has confirmed new conference dates for 2022 ACAMIS ELL Conference to be held on Saturday & Sunday, November 5-6, 2022.  

Again we sincerely thank Ms. Wang Hong and her team at the Beijing World Youth Academy for all of the hard work they have put into planning and preparations for this conference. 

We look forward to seeing you in Beijing this November!


 

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.

The theme of this year’s conference is Evidence Equity Elevate.  The theme focuses on the use of data to inform instruction and to ensure that each student has the support and resources to succeed and thrive. 

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!
