KSAALT is committed to excellent professional development opportunities for all its members. To that end we hold a yearly conference; where, while hearing from the top professionals in the field, we also offer the chance for teachers, academics and researchers in the field to provide papers and workshops that reflect particular aspects of Language Teaching. Each Chapter presents a programme of lectures throughout the year, and all members are encouraged to develop research and papers that they can enhance their career progression with by presenting at the Annual Conference.

Competition is fierce; in the interests of keeping research and development work to the highest levels of achievement, we can’t always take everyone’s papers. But even if you are not successful one year, with continued professional growth, next year success may follow.
