IH Young Learners Conference 2022

10-12 November 2022

After a couple of years of hosting the YL conference online, we are very pleased to confirm that the YL conference this year will be held in person and hosted by IH Roma Academia Britannica on 11th and 12th November 2022

Participants will come from all over the world and there will be a mixture of plenaries and workshops with both Young Learner related managerial content and practical classroom ideas.

As always, we are looking forward to sharing the wealth of expertise in the IH network.  This will be an opportunity to share old and new ideas, explore principles and procedures of YL teaching and collaborate with the wonderful IH YL community.
