CATESOL 2016 has ended
Thank you for attending CATESOL 2016 in San Diego!

We appreciate your feedback, which we’ll use in planning 2017 in Santa Clara.

You can view the whole conference schedule by the day and also search for sessions and events by speaker, title, session type, level, and even room! Maps of the Town & Country and the Exhibit Hall are in the menu. You can create and save your personalized conference schedule by creating a free login in sched.org, but you do not need to create a login to use this site! This site - and uploaded materials - will remain available long after the conference.

Annet N Dragavon
For over two years, I have been teaching young adult Google employees, mostly from China, through small, customized onsite classes.
I have developed curricula, including curated materials (no course book) both adapted and original, that mainly focus on conversation, small talk, culture, pronunciation and listening . I would like to discuss ESL training for highly educated professionals. They grapple with lack of confidence due to not knowing or understanding sociocultural norms, cultural references and advanced vocabulary. Many experience frustration at not understanding nor being understood in social conversation. Also am interested in learning about Adult Ed, specially, options for getting CA certified in adult ed teaching. (I already have an MA so would like the quickest, easiest route, if one exists!)
