The 19th Annual KOTESOL 2011

This year's International KOTESOL conference was held at Sook-Myung University in Seoul. It took place Oct. 15-16. This was the 19th year the conference has been held.

KOTESOL gets many student volunteers from universities throughout Korea. Many student volunteers for KOTESOL go to do some training at Sookmyung University the weekend before the big conference. At the training volunteers learn about the different jobs available to work. Also volunteers find out how to do their jobs and get their work schedules.

I got to interview one of the volunteers.

Q : What did you think about KOTESOL conference?

A : I thought it was a very interesting and new experience for me. I got to talk to friends from various countries, and we worked together. So I got make confidence and more practice communicating in English.

 As a whole it was a successful conference, but there is always room for improvement. For example may be more food choice for the conference guests or even a few more volunteers to help guests find their way around the campus.
