The British Council International ELT Conference has become one of the most anticipated and well-attended annual events in the English Language teaching calendar in Algeria and a “must attend” event in the English Language Teaching (ELT) field.

From the first ever British Council ELT Conference in Algiers in 2014, to the larger-scale conference in 2015 in Oran attracting over 1,000 participants, our conferences have been acclaimed as being refreshingly different in focusing on communicative workshops and talks.

Attended by over 1,000 ELT professionals from across the whole of Algeria, our 2015 conference  involved a 2-day programme of nearly 70 workshops and symposiums delivered by nearly 40 international and Algerian speakers.

This year’s event promises to be even bigger and better with a 3 day event and 1,500 participants!


This year, the Conference will take place at the prestigious Centre de Convention at Le Meridien Hotel in Oran, where we will be bringing together leading international and Algerian ELT experts and speakers for an exciting three day programme of nearly 90 talks, presentations, workshops and symposia to be opened by the British Ambassador and Algerian dignitaries.


Would you like to meet Scott Thornbury, the internationally famous academic and teacher trainer in ELT who wrote numerous books including “How to teach speaking”, “Big questions in ELT”, “Beyond the Sentence” and top-quality resource books for ELT teachers?

What about Jeremy Harmer, the internationally acclaimed writer, presenter, teacher and trainer who also wrote many methodology titles, course materials and learner literature for ELT?

Scott and Jeremy, together with many other top-level international speakers will deliver engaging and communicatively-based keynote and plenary speeches as well as giving participants the opportunity to attend workshops and symposia throughout the course of the three days. The conference will give the participants the unique occasion of meeting leading international theorists and writers and exchanging ideas with fellow professionals from all sectors of English Language Teaching.

The grand Exhibition Hall will host partners and sponsors’ promotional stands and stands of publishers to showcase and sell ELT publications for the conference participants.

Additionally, we are offering a screening of the Shakespeare film, “Much Ado About Nothing” as part of the conference.

Who for?

British Council is aiming at attracting over 1,500 participants from the field of English language teaching, both state and private as well as language schools, student teachers of English and English lecturers from universities.
