“Reimaging Language Teaching in Turkey: Challenges and Opportunities”

The third ELT undergraduate conference, “GELTUS”, focuses on the challenges and opportunities in teaching English as a foreign language in Turkey with a specific emphasis on reimagining our current beliefs, assumptions and practice of ELT across the educational cycles. The GELTUS conference, in essence, aims at supporting and strengthening academic stance, research culture and scholarly communication among prospective English teachers studying in local ELT programs.

To this end, GELTUS welcomes presentations and discussions in various areas and aspects of ELT and applied linguistics, as follows.
