Just to inform you all that I attended the 6th International Conference on Literacy, at Berjaya Georgetown Hotel from 7-9 Oct. I was replacing a sick teacher actually. My boss wanted new teachers to attend so that we would be able to learn new ideas. Fortunately for me and another colleague, our participation [rm300 per person] were already paid for.
I was hoping to meet some of you from Penang but there was nobody else from our batch. Anyway, I had a short chat with Dr Tan Kok Eng, who recommended that we do our Masters programme fulltime. I met Dr Sunny Tan too, and a few lecturers from Pusat Bahasa.
The conference was well-organised and I had a good time learning about the latest researches done by the presenters. The 7th LITCON will be held in 2011.
Anyone who is interested to win free tickets to the International Conference on English Language Teaching [ICELT] soon to be held in Malacca in November, please contact me or leave a comment here.
