Daniel Ward will be 2012 Conference Keynote

Mark your calendar for this fall's
conference! You won't want to miss
Daniel Ward, publisher and editor of Language® Magazine, the publication that MCTLC members receive monthly as a benefit of membership.

Daniel Ward believes that everyone deserves the opportunities that languages offer – be they immigrants building a new life, business people closing a deal, ex-enemies en route to reconciliation, strangers breaking cultural boundaries, or teenagers making new friends. He was educated in the UK, Canada, Spain, and France, and received an Honors Degree in Modern Languages with International Studies specializing in European Integration. After teaching English in Spain, he joined the EL (English Language) Gazette in London, UK, where he became executive editor, and was behind the launch of Language Travel Magazine and the ELT Guide. In addition to his work in language publishing, Daniel has lectured and written training programs on financial regulation, and was press officer for the World Chess Championships 2000 between Gary Kasparov and Vladimir Kramnik, where he supervised the live, online streaming of the event to more than a million simultaneous users – a record at the time.

John Rassias Unable to Keynote Conference

Our original keynote speaker, John Rassias of Dartmouth College, recently lost his wife and is unable to be with us at this year's conference. Please join us as we send him our kindest thoughts.
