FAAPI'13 Report

On behalf of FAAPI (Argentine Federation of English Teachers’ Association), APIBA (Buenos Aires English Teachers’ Association) organised the 38th FAAPI Annual Conference, which was held at Universidad Católica Argentina, Puerto Madero, Buenos Aires, Argentina, on 26-28 September 2013.

FAAPI and its 21 Teacher Associations are non-profit organisations founded in most cases in the early 1970s. Each is run by an elected Executive Committee, composed of graduate Teachers of English with a wish to voluntarily devote time to improving the profession.

The FAAPI Annual Conference has been held yearly in Argentina since the early 1970s and it takes place in a different Argentine city every September, organised by one of the 21 FAAPI Teacher Associations. The FAAPI Annual Conference has a solid reputation for the prestigious academic figures who participate year after year and for the quality and variety of the topics discussed, which are of great interest to those involved in the teaching profession in Argentina and the rest of Latin America.

The 2013 FAAPI Conference main themes were bi/multi/plurilingualism, interculturality and language identities in the 21st century as well as the methodologies needed in the new educational scenario. Among the many participants that attended the FAAPI 2013 Conference there were 1200 teachers, teacher trainers, trainees, publishers and school managers from Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Brazil, Paraguay, Peru, Colombia and Mexico
