The theme of the conference is “Changes and Chances in ELT.”

Under the theme ''Changes and Chances in ELT '', this year's conference provides an open arena of discussion for ELT educators in Asia and across the globe in the age of 21st-century literacies. Our goal is to create a forum for in-depth discussions on managing changes in English language teaching, days of inquiry and critical engagement in finding supportive and collaborative working environment that will promote effective classroom practices for the benefits of English and foreign language learners. We as researchers, practitioners, educational stakeholders are facing global education movements and challenges that led us to rethink, reframe and reflect on our practice. At Thailand TESOL 2019 conference, all participants will have an opportunity to share their teaching experience and approaches with a view to shedding some light on these formidable challenges.
