A CONFERENCE for English-language teachers, the ELTFORUM, was held for the first time in Slovakia, presented by the Faculty of Physical Education and Sports at Comenius University in Bratislava on June 10-11. For that one weekend it was the place to be for English-language teachers working in Slovakia.

The two-day conference consisted of a plenary session delivered by experts specialising in teaching English.

The list of speakers featured eminent specialists such as the June 10 speaker, Michael Swan, who teaches English and writes reference materials. His many publications include Practical English Usage (Oxford University Press) and, with Catherine Walter, the Cambridge English Course series and the new Oxford English Grammar Course. Simultaneously, various workshops focusing on issues that reflect the current needs of English teachers working in Slovakia were held.

The organising committee of the conference consisted of the British Council in Slovakia, the publishing houses of Cambridge University Press, Macmillan, Express Publishing and Oxford University Press and the Association of Language Schools of the Slovak Republic.

That association, founded in September 2010, holds as its main aim to create a group of the best language schools in Slovakia and to provide further education in the field of teaching foreign languages.

The association welcomes applications by new members. Membership in the association is based primarily on having achieved qualifications in teaching foreign languages.
