April is IATEFL month, and as usual, we look forward to meeting old friends and new colleagues from the international ELT community at the conference.

Come and meet us at stand 33 in the exhibition hall, we'd love to hear your news, and tell you about ours!

This year seven NILE staff will present, and we are delighted to see that several NILE MA students and graduates are sharing their current resarch and projects in Harrogate. Below are the times and titles of the permanent staff's sessions.
