Earlybird deadline for Extensive Reading World Congress approaches

Teaching-English-in-Japan-Education-ERF" June 30th sees the deadline for Earlybird Registration for the first Extensive Reading World Congress being held September 3~6 this year in Kyoto. Speakers will include David R. Hill, William Grabe, Paul Nation, Richard Day, Jeong-Ryeoul Kim and many more.

The World Congress represents the first time for all those involved with the extensive reading approach – teachers, scholars, writers and publishers – to gather under one roof for a conference dedicated purely to extensive reading. There will be a total of over 150 presentations during the conference consisting of plenary sessions, concurrent sessions, colloquia and workshops.

Vaughan Jones (pictured), former Heinemann Japan country manager and co-author of the best-selling Inside Out series, will also be attending the Congress and will be talking about extensive reading on mobile devices. He is sponsored by sister company iEnglish.
