The Cameroon English Language and Literature Teachers’ Association was happy to host this year’s TESOL Symposium in Africa. The one-day event on Monday 12 August 2013 provided a unique opportunity for K–12 English language teachers, teacher trainers, and school authorities in Cameroon, and elsewhere in Africa, as well as EFL contexts worldwide to explore effective policies and practices in K–12 teacher development. Leading international, regional and national ELT experts shared practical and research-based ideas and strategies to help participants improve their practices. This was followed by the 12th Annual CAMELTA Conference and AGM from 13-15 August, 2013.
Key speakers at the Symposium included:
Deena Boraie, The American University in Cairo, Egypt
Christine Coombe, Dubai Men’s College, Dubai, UAE
Richard Smith, University of Warwick, UK
