About Eltforum

Eltforum is a conference organised by the Bridge – English Language Centre and a special interest group of IATEFL – LAMSIG. It is aimed at all English language teachers in primary and secondary education, language schools, universities as well as organisations that work within language education in Slovakia and the rest of Europe. It is a two-day event that offers a number of interesting workshops and plenary sessions delivered by respected ELT professionals from all around the world.
Eltforum is proud to partnerships with Association of Language Schools of the Slovak Republic, IATEFL and Pilgrims teacher training.

We are proud to announce that we have been granted the Platinum EVE. This is the EVE that recognises balance of both gender and highly proficient L1/L2 speakers across an ELT event’s plenary line-up.
