It is an honour and a pleasure to announce the BELTA Day 2017 Plenary Speaker: the patron of IATEFL (the International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language), MR DAVID CRYSTAL!
Many people are familiar with Mr Crystal’s countless books on the English Language or his videos on the internet. He is a charismatic speaker who has informed and entertained audiences for years! If you have never had the opportunity to hear Mr Crystal speak live, then this is your only opportunity in Belgium this school year.
Mr Crystal will open the BELTA Day 2017, 5th Anniversary Conference with his talk entitled Pragmatics: The Final Frontier and end the conference with Advanced Conversational English – Fact and Fiction. At another point during the day-long event, Mr Crystal will take and answer language-focused questions. It is a unique opportunity to interact with a titan of the English as a Foreign Language Teacher community.
So, please SAVE THE DATE! May 13, 2017 marks the 5th annual BELTA Day conference at Odisee in Brussels. Remember to check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates about the conference.
