Conference Description
    The 14th Asia TEFL and 11th FEELTA international conference places emphasis on working towards expertise in English Language Teaching through being connected professionally in Asia and worldwide. Professional networks link teachers from a variety of educational contexts, helping to foster research, advance expertise and update knowledge. We invite educators and scholars, policy makers and practitioners to collaborate and share pedagogical theories, excellent teaching ideas and relevant practices developed in diverse ELT contexts.
    The 'bridge' metaphor in our theme is inspired by the conference venue. The FEFU campus is located on Russky Island "across the bridge" from the mainland. It also refers to new horizons and perspectives in the field of ELT that we discover when we "cross the bridge" to explore pioneering teaching ideas and stimulating experiences.
