Announcement : Call for Participation ICELT 2011 in Damai Laut, Lumut, Perak

Dear Readers,

Here's a conference that teachers in primary and secondary schools should go.

I had a good time there at the same series of conference and had a very packed room for my workshop.

The theme this year is on Performing Arts -- a powerful tool to create interest and engagement with our students when used with the Literature Component.

It's one of three conferences that is geared for practising teachers, besides the usual academia.

The place chosen is the very lovely full flegded spa & golf resort in Lumut, Perak--The Swiss Garden Resort & Spa.

Here's where we ETs will have a good time for physical and professional refreshment plus useful networking.

Present a paper or a workshop if you can. As the theme is on performing arts, you can present something on what you did with the drama, poems, short stories or the novel in the Literature component.

I hope to present something and to be there. The main speakers and presenters look interesting. Details below and at website.

See you there!

Rodney Tan

P.S. I'm looking for a room partner to split the bill (3 nights). If anyone is interested, please email me at

A huge resort complex awaits you with all the facilities
for a perfect rejuvenation,
both for your emotional and professional health.

View the setting sun and the glow of the twilight from the resort.
Worth your conference fee just to view this.

The long corridor leading to a spacious lobby.
The whole place has a Malay village influence to it.

The bedrooms are spacious and clean with a charming kampung feel.
This is the Deluxe Room.

A fantastic view of the sea and Pangkor Island from the dining area.
Watch the sunset from here. 
The resort has a commanding view as it is situated on a high hillside.

Spacious and comfortable ballroom as main plenary location but
you have to walk up and down some flight of stairs from your room.
Don't worry. The resort provides buggy service if you live on the hillside chalets.

After the North-South Expressway, you still have about
21/2 hrs travel through scenic paddy fields and villages
before reaching Damai Laut.
