OF OUR SAN
We are delighted to announce the return of our annual San Sebastián ELT conference, now in its 4th year. The conference will be held on the 26th of March 2022, once again in the beautiful Palacio Miramar, overlooking the bay of La Concha.

As you all know our 2020 and 2021 conferences were cancelled, as were many, due to the Covid-19 crisis that we have all endured over the last 2 years. It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that we announce our return for the 2022 conference, and hope that as many teachers as possible are able to join us on this special day in San Sebastián. Fingers crossed for good weather!
Language Testing Services (LTS) first ran the conference back in 2017 with the aim of giving all those involved in English language teaching the chance to keep up to date with the latest developments in the industry. Since then, we have held 4 conferences in which we were delighted to welcome an excellent line-up of ELT professionals who all contributed to their success. Again, this year, we are honoured to host a wide range of speakers all of whom are experts in their field.
None of this would be possible without the collaboration of our sponsors, who have supported us from the very beginning and have given us the opportunity to bring some world-class speakers to the Basque Country. We are also incredibly grateful to the hundreds of teachers who have attended our conferences and who have all helped to make them days to remember.
The ELT Conference is attended by a wide range of teaching professionals. There are academy teachers, early childhood, primary and secondary school teachers, university lecturers, as well as teacher trainers.
Publishers, suppliers of educational resources, researchers and authors of national and international renown also participate in the Convention.
The conference offers participants a wide range of presentations from both national and international speakers, including plenary and keynote addresses and round table debates.
This conference aims to identify the most important trends for the future of English language teaching, identifying the challenges facing educators and showcasing the most innovative models for improvement.

Nowadays, technology is an important part of the learning process and many students are immersed in a technology mediated learning environment. We want to explore how technology is driving learning, how new gadgets and devices are influencing the learning process and how these changes are affecting our learners’ brains.
