What do teachers think of IATEFL?

Four Pearson English Global Teacher Award winners from around the globe joined us in 2018. It was their first time attending IATEFL, so we wanted to learn about what they enjoyed most. 

Some things they enjoyed were:

  • The diversity
  • Networking
  • Hearing different accents
  • Learning from the lectures

The 2019 Teacher Award winners will be attending IATEFL.
