As we are aware, numerous organizations in Japan, both at the regional level and at the national level are in the business of teaching English. Each works in a unique environment and serves a unique constituency and therefore each has an expertise. The purpose of this conference is to make connections. Through our participation in this conference we will forge relationships, share ideas and gain new perspectives on the art of teaching English. Toward this end we have gathered together teachers from both large and small organizations in the Kanto area (Saitama, Yokohama, Gunma) to present on what they are currently doing and their vision of English teaching. We have a variety of learning and teaching environments represented too.

Conference goals
1. Demonstrate that inter-organisational co-operation is possible.
2. Establish inter-organisational relationships in Kanto.
3. Provide opportunities for members to share their experiences through giving and attending presentations.
4. Provide support for the continued growth and prosperity of all participating organizations.

Participating organizations: JALT Omiya, JALT Junior and Senior High School Special Interest Group, The Association of Japan Exchange and Teaching (AJET), The English Teacher and Learner Cooperative (eTLC), Elementary School Thematic English Education Movement (ESTEEM).
