TO KSAALT !
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Association of Language Teachers is a group of language educators interested in promoting and supporting language instruction across Saudi Arabia. Although most members of KSAALT teach English as a second or foreign language, KSAALT welcomes educators that teach all languages or teach content with English as a medium of instruction. The main mission of this budding organization is to connect those interested in supporting and advancing language instruction. Its success depends on the ethos, logos, and pathos of its members. KSAALT supports educators from all institutions and levels (e.g. K-12, tertiary education, language institutions) and welcomes instructors from all nations.
KSAALT's short-term goals are to establish a strong, workable organization with appropriate governing documents, an active membership, and events that benefit educators in the area. In the long term, KSAALT hopes to host and help facilitate consistent monthly seminars, annual conferences, publish scholarly journals with a review board, and pursue new venues to accommodate our growing membership.
