This year APABAL is honoured to welcome the following keynote speakers who will run the plenary sessions of the V APABAL Convention. Our programme will also include a number of workshops conducted by guest speakers who are also well known experts in their field.


Jeremy has written courses, readers and books about teaching including The Practice of English Language Teaching, and Essential Teacher Knowledge. He has trained (and spoken with) teachers around the world. He is a faculty member on the MATESOL at The New School, New York. Away from ELT, Jeremy is a musician and spoken word performer. With colleague Steve Bingham he has toured the show Touchable Dreams, and is a regular performer in folk clubs in and around Cambridge UK (where he lives). His children’s oratorio, Island, premiered in 2015. Recently, Jeremy has co-written two levels of the series for young adults/adults “Jetstream” for Helbling English.

TALK TITLE: What’s it like being a teacher?

What is the role of a teacher? What are their responsibilities, what are their challenges?
And how do teachers feel in the middle of all of this.
In this plenary session we will discuss the role of a (good) teacher and how teachers can and should support each other’s professional development. Because in the end no (man) teacher is an island – or at least they shouldn’t be!
