IELTS Professional Development Workshop in New Orleans
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Join IELTS International for an ESL teacher workshop on March 15, 2011, in New Orleans, LA. As the world’s leading English language proficiency test, IELTS is used to provide evidence that non-native speakers have the English skills required for academic success. IELTS is trusted by over 6,000 organizations around the world, including over 3,000 institutions and programs in the U.S. IELTS tested over 1.5 million candidates globally in 2010. Registration for the workshop is free.
The IELTS professional development workshop will be held on Tuesday, March 15, 2011, from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, one day prior to the opening of the TESOL 2011 Annual Convention. The free workshop will provide an introductory overview for ESL teachers who are interested in developing an IELTS test preparation course, and offer complimentary copies of IELTS resource and preparation materials. Participants will examine the basic test format, task types, writing and speaking test samples, and learn how to integrate IELTS preparation into academic course curricula.
“More and more international ESL students studying in the U.S. want to take IELTS and are asking their teachers for information,” said Richard Halstead, U.S. Regional Manager for IELTS International. “We hope the information and resources provided will allow teachers to advise students about IELTS and successfully prepare them to do well on the test.”
Participation, refreshments and resources are complimentary. Due to limited space, interested teachers are asked to RSVP their name, title, institution, phone number and email to email@example.com on or before March 1, 2011.
