The English as a Foreign Language Monitoring Board organised the second edition of the annual ELT Malta Conference between 6 and 7 September.

Around 330 ELT professionals, working in both private language schools and the mainstream educational sector, attended the conference.

The audience was provided with the opportunity of attending talks by world-renowned ELT experts like Jeremy Harmer, Adrian Underhill and Ken Wilson. The conference had a total of six plenary talks and 21 workshops. A number of these workshops were led by local ELT practitioners.

In his welcoming speech, Education Minister Evarist Bartolo praised the EFL Monitoring Board’s initiative to organise an annual conference for teachers working in the local ELT sector.

He emphasised the importance of high English standards in Malta as a means of retaining a competitive edge internationally. For this reason the country’s bilingual status needs to be safeguarded at all costs.
