Corona Virus’ pandemic has been badly impacted on all aspects of our life, especially in Education. Universities and schools have been trying hard to overcome this critical period. Teachers and lecturers are also trying harder to fight with e-learning in order to maintain the quality of education. However, not every instructor is successful in dealing with these circumstances. So, we need to get together to share our real experiences in our own teaching contexts in order that successful educators can help each other to improve this educational situation.
Therefore, we VLTESOL and IJTE organize the 1st International Conference of TESOL & Education on 22 January 2022 at Van Lang University, 69/68 Dang Thuy Tram Street, Ward 13, Binh Thanh District, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The Conference provides a forum for teachers, educators, and university leaders to come and share their experiences in education during the Corona Virus’ pandemic, issues of E-learning, language, linguistics, translations & interpretations, TESOL, English Language Studies, and education.
Due to the CoronaVirus Pandemic recently, the Conference will run in virtual mode only.
The conference fees for the local participants are 750.000 VND, and for the international participants is 70 USD.
