About the Conference



Thammasat University International Conference

ELT in the Digital Age

6-7 July 2017

Organized by the Department of English and Linguistics

Faculty of Liberal Arts, Thammasat University

Bangkok, Thailand


The Department of English and Linguistics, Faculty of Liberal Arts, Thammasat University will host an international conference on ELT in the Digital Age.


It is undeniable that the role of English language as the primary medium of communication for world citizens has become increasingly important in the digital age. Over recent years, English language teaching has undergone considerable change shaped by a variety of factors including individual needs, learning styles, cultural values, multiculturalism, and digital innovations. However, pathways to success in teaching English to ESL and EFL learners can be a challenging task as there is no specific language teaching formula that suits learners in all contexts.


It should be incumbent on individual teachers to be aware of academic developments within the field of ELT in order to apply different teaching approaches appropriate for their students. Insights into these academic developments will not only broaden our knowledge of English language teaching in the digital age but also provide a valuable forum for all participants to gain understanding of various issues in ELT through academic exchanges and discussions.
