KOTESOL National Conference, With Jack Richards in Jeonju

Saturday, May 25, 2019 - 09:00

Motiva(c)tion: Sparking Learner Motivation in our Evolving Context

KOTESOL's 2019 National Conference

Featuring Jack C. Richards (author of Interchange and Four Corners)

May 25th (Saturday)
Jeonju University, Jeonju, North Jeolla Province

The English language teaching context is in constant flux, with our students' focus on technology seemingly reducing their attention span, the rapid change in student number with the low birth rate in Korea, and other factors within and beyond our control. How can we as teachers, administrators, parents, and members of the public take action to improve learner motivation to learn English?

Saturday conference, but spend a late-spring weekend in beautiful Jeonju. Sleep in a Hanok? Eat. Travel. Eat. Meet new friends. Eat.

Jong-ga Dining at Jeonju's Hakindang House

It's rare, if not impossible, that you will find yourself having a bad Korean meal in Korea.  It just doesn't happen.  But every so often, usually when it's least expected, you will experience culinary nirvana.  It will be a meal that proves to be unique from any other you've had in the past, one that changes you, one that finds you awake the following morning wondering if it was all just a dream.

It might be a plate of steaming mandu made with fresh kimchi at a street stall on a frigid winter day. Or a perfectly cooked jeon, served up with a bowl of homemade makgeolli in a back-alley hangout.  It might be consumed alone, with a new lover, or a group of old friends.  The meal might be a new gastronomical concept, unfamiliar and exciting, or may be Grandma's secret recipe, instantly recognizable and comforting.
