Promoting Professionalism in ELT

Padang, February 22 – 24, 2010


As a world-wide language, the great need for the teaching-learning of English as an L2 and/or an FL has been increasing significantly. However, the teaching-learning process of English as an FL in Indonesia has not been fairly successful yet. Natural, cultural, psychological, theoretical, and practical problems are still in crucial issues which need to be discussed seriously. In order to have significant success in the teaching-learning of English, professionalism in English Language Teaching (ELT) should be stimulated and promoted by means of various ways. Having conference on ELT is one way which can be held to obtain the intended professionalism.
