Overall objective:

To provide teachers of English as a foreign language to young learners (at primary levels) with the opportunity for continuing professional development, through a face-to-face conference:

• To enable young learner teachers to take away new learning and understanding and practical skills, or to validate existing knowledge or understanding, to improve young learner teaching and learning in the classroom.
• To enable young learner teachers to take away new learning and understanding and practical skills to engage in their own continuing professional development (and of others).
