The Asian Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language (Asia TEFL) is to serve as a forum that brings together ELT professionals in the Asia region to collect, disseminate, and discuss information on English language teaching and learning in the Asian context with the objective of promoting scholarship which will lead to improvements in the way English is both learned and taught. We aim to do this through our first annual conference, to be held in Busan, South Korea. (Note: Busan is what some readers may know as Pusan.)
The Asia TEFL International Conference Committee invites presentation proposals. The submission deadline is August 14, 2003. The official language for the conference, including presentations and submissions, is English.
