THT Kyrgyzstan presentations (2016 & 2019)
The Teachers Helping Teachers Special Interest Group (THT SIG) of the Japan Association of Language Teaching (JALT) began from the charity work of the late Bill Balsamo. At the time of this writing there were four yearly overseas conferences in Laos, Vietnam, Kyrgyzstan, and Bangladesh. Participants pay their own way, prepare 2-3 presentations to present multiple times to groups of local university and secondary school teachers who may not otherwise have access to professional development. I have presented five different presentations in the two times I went to Kyrgyzstan.
