First international teachers’ confab scheduled in August
by Ofelia C. Empian

The first International English Teachers Conference that will gather experts and other stakeholders in the industry is set from Aug. 18 to 20 at Teachers’ Camp.

Dubbed as “Strengthening oral proficiency development in the English language: Realities, intervention, measures, and formal assessment system,” the event will feature different topics on up-to-date tools needed by the academe.

Organized by Vivixx Technical Academy, the three-day event aims to define 21st century English literacy in line with the K to 12 education in the country and to identify skills needed to achieve it and set definitive standards for English speaking, reading, and writing assessment through internationally accepted assessment tools.

It will also be an avenue for the exchange of ideas and dissemination of information on good practices within English Language Teaching (ELT), and will broaden the network of English language teachers and all those involved in the ELT sector in the Philippines.

“The event aims to recognize the commitment of Filipino English language educators by institutionalizing this yearly event, thus helping promote further development of English literacy,” organizers said.

The event will present realities of oral proficiency levels: Industry required vis-a-vis actual oral proficiency levels; intervention measures in oral proficiency, and formal assessment tools in oral proficiency.

The event will feature speakers from the American Council on Teaching of Foreign Languages, Teachers of ESL Association of the Philippines, Commission on Higher Education, Department of Education, among others.

Workshops will follow after each presentation.

“Attendees will obtain Professional Development in Tesol Certificate equivalent to 30 hours which will be credited to the 120-hour Tesol certification course that they can pursue after the conference,” organizers said.

The registration fee per participant is P3,500 inclusive of conference handbook, lunch, and accommodations at Teachers’ Camp. Registration is ongoing.

For more information, contact the secretariat through Allen Alvaro or Beranie Balag at 619-7787, 0917-501-7787 or 0918-818-7787; or email them at

The event is limited to 500 participants.
