I take this opportunity to extend my gratitude and congratulations to Prof. Anjali Patil-Gaikwad and her impressive team of volunteers who for hosting Confluence VI in Nagpur from January 24-25, 2015.
The impressive line of up speakers who will be addressing pertinent issues relates to ESL teaching and learning indicates an encouraging future for the field of TESOL in India. It is evident that Language teaching is a priority and that best practice is being encouraged. English Language teaching in a digital world has created an exciting context for student engagement but it also presents new challenges for practitioners.
Confluence VI will provide a collaborative forum in which to address and share ideas about these issues. There is no doubt that the ELT specialists and other participants attending the conference this year will benefit immensely from the immediacy of the information offered in the sessions and that there will be practical ideas that will be enhance the learning environment.
From all indications Confluence VI is gearing up to be a memorable event and I wish all the organizers, presenters and participants the best
