About BBELT 2022

BBELT (Best and Brightest in ELT) is one of the main events in the English Language Teaching calendar in the Americas. The conference offers teachers of English an opportunity to learn about the latest trends and new ideas in English Language Teaching (ELT). Attendees can participate in academic sessions, presentations, workshops, attend the poster exhibition and demonstrations of some of the best teaching material available. It provides a space for exchange, dialogue, and reflection on ELT in the Americas, bringing together outstanding teaching specialists from the UK and the rest of the world.

The 2022 edition of BBELT is an online conference which expands the offer of continuing professional development (CPD) and creates new opportunities for the ELT community in the Americas by connecting teachers in the region, empowering learners, and providing new skills through new ways of teaching.

This year’s conference theme, 'Connecting teachers, empowering learners' will be an opportunity for teachers and other ELT professionals to share experiences and good practice, and understand the importance of networking, trying out new ideas and extending knowledge. The conference will also be a space for reflection on how the role of the learner has changed and how teachers can empower students through English, and all skills required for the ever-changing new global context.

What will BBELT 2022 involve?

During a 2-day programme, participants will be able to choose from 6 plenary sessions, a poster exhibition, cultural events, network activities, raffles, amazing awards, and 72 academic presentations, forums, talks, and workshops designed to introduce the latest trends and ideas in English Language Teaching (ELT). All this, alongside a virtual exhibition of the best ELT material available involving 12 ELT-related exhibitors from the UK and Mexico.


The British Council will host BBELT virtually from 18 to 19 February 2022.
