Description

---This event forms part of the University of Essex Teachers' and Advisers' CPD Week---


Join us for the tenth Essex Languages Conference for Teachers from our Department of Languages and Linguistics - a day of engaging lectures, workshops and networking designed to leave you inspired about language teaching!

Whether you teach languages in a primary school, secondary school or college, whether you're a subject leader or just starting out as a trainee or newly qualified teacher, the ELCT offers the chance to hear the latest updates from our Languages and Linguistics academics.

You'll meet and work alongside teaching professionals from across the region in a relaxed and informal setting, and end the day feeling even more excited to get back into the classroom!


Lectures and workshops include:

  • A short introduction to signed languages – features, common misconceptions, and current research

  • Language, identity and accent

  • Language attrition

  • African languages
