Conference Feedback

ELT Algeria Conference 2019

1. I feel that I have missed some good presentations. So switching groups is an option.
Some of the workshops I attended are too theoretical. Practical tasks are more required.
I wish we had an organized tour in the city of Mostaganem.
                                                                                                                  Nouha Hammouda
*ELT Algeria Conference: Good to think about visiting places of interests in the future.

2. The organizing committee demonstrated professionalism and the venue was comfortable and relieving. The most valuable aspect in this conference is meeting great minds, gaining precious knowledge and experience. I suggest workshops that provide good lesson planning, and why not inviting native speakers. Thanks you for your professionalism and great efforts.

3. ELT Algeria conference is an opportunity that shouldn't be missed; it has come in the adequate moment in the history of Algeria.The event has reflected the "know how to do " of the Algerian educators : devotion, seriousness and resourcefulness. All this created an enjoyable  learning atmosphere where organizers, speakers and participants met their needs in a full harmony and respect. I suggest other interesting topics like PBL and ICT use in EFL classroom as well as practical activities.
      This conference is like  a dream that has been realized thanks to the good will of fair and beautiful minds.
                                                                                                                     Beya Ayed Himoud 
*ELT Algeria Conference: Very interesting topics to be considered.

4. Apart from two workshops I attended, all the others were not inspiring at all. These two workshops were new and innovative in terms of  topics and presentation. The conference as a whole was great; well-organized, serious and a lot of interaction in the residence, which is a beautiful place.Thank you so much for everything

                                                                                                                                 A participant

5. Everything is positive and more than I expected: the objectives of the conference are met, the workshops prove to be interactive, the atmosphere is good and the organizers work hard for the success of the conference. Amazing conference!
                                                                                                                Naserddine Reguieg

6. A successful first edition, hoping the second will be much better when considering the following: well-planned workshops, interactive workshops and not lecturing, more practice and more time allotted to each presentation. I actually appreciated  the perfect organization in addition to the family atmosphere between teachers coming from different wilayas

                                                                                                                                 A participant

7. The organizing committee is very supportive and friendly. Some presentations are too theoretical. We love the venue. I believe that the conference is successful with regard to the organization.
                                                                                                                              Dine Radia

8. The conference was great and a real success. I appreciate the organization and the quality of the workshops. With my respect to the Algerian speakers, just if possible try to invite native speakers in the future.

Thank you very much.

                                                                                                                                   A participant

*ELT Algeria Conference: We hope we can invite native speakers in the future, and here sponsors are needed.

9. A well-framed organizing committee.The venue is satisfactory to a large extent.I love the friendly atmosphere. I suggest more time for panel discussion.
                                                                                                                     Dehdouh Wafa
*ELT Algeria Conference: We wanted to give more time to teachers to relax after 5 pm and visit the city.

10 The conference is amazing, fruitful and beneficial with inspiring presenters/ presentations.I like very much the organization (everything in its place). Just think for more practice activities in the next conference.


11. The organizers facilitate everything, and the venue is a very suitable environment for training and learning.  Can't thank you enough for this quality conference. Keep it up!
                                                                                                                                 Madjid Tir

12. I am very satisfied. I learned new things through the different workshops and the discussions I have had with new colleagues. I highly appreciate the organization, the respect of time and the availability of the conference staff.

According to me the presentations should not be restricted to one subject as it was only about Professional Development.

                                                                                                                                                                 Lansari Wassila

13. Very well-organized conference; time bound! I found the workshops interactive and useful for both middle and high school teachers. I do thank you for what you have done throughout the time you devoted to make this conference a success. Hoping there will be more conferences in the future.
                                                                                                                             Irid Hachemi

14. Getting in touch with new educators was great.The organization was satisfactory, the workshops were more interactive than inspiring. Avoid 'cliché' subjects. We need new and innovative topics. I will come next year as a speaker.

                                                                                                                          Souad Bouanati

*ELT Algeria Conference: That will be great to have you as a speaker.

15. Top organization led to a great result; speakers demonstrated professionalism, inspiring workshops - just some of them needed more practical side-, the staff did a great job and the venue is great! Thank you ELT Algeria staff and El Omara Residence staff.
                                                                                                                               Aissa Djelil

16.The conference was very successful. The organizing staff was always present and punctual. The venue is great, located in a beautiful place. It is fantastic. I am glad to take part in this conference and be among all these educators coming from different parts of the country.

                                                                                                                                  A participant

17. Everything was well-organized, the committee did their best. The venue is beautiful. The presenters were professional. Better if they gave more practical work mainly for novice teachers. I do thank all the staff for their efforts. I was happy. I am proud of you all.
                                                                                                                      Abdelkader Maaz

 18.I am so happy to  be here with you, but I am not very satisfied with the work presented. It does not meet my expectations. I like the work done by the organizers, but I don't like accommodation: the rooms are not comfortable at all, and there is no connection!

                                                                                                                        Meryem Arroudj

19. What I like in the conference is socializing, interactivity, positiveness between all participants. For the future event, I suggest topics on Testing as well as The use of ICT in EFL Classroom. My conclusion: the conference was successful and we all have enjoyed it.
                                                                                                                     Ahmed Chougrani

 20. I am very happy to be with you. The conference is fruitful. Only positive points. The one remark I would like to make is that One hour for a workshop is not enough at all

                                                                                                                     Hichem Belkhouane

*ELT Algeria Conference: We are thinking of giving more time to each presentation. Doing so, we will have less workshops.

21. Positiveness and warmth in addition to shared experiences are, I think, the most useful aspects of this conference. For the next event, the focus could be raised on the psychological aspect of both learners and teachers. The conference was very successful. My wish is to give the opportunity to less experienced teachers to be speakers.
                                                                                                                   Saliha Benkechida

22. Such events are very important for teachers of English to get out their stressing zone. The organization and time management were remarkable. However; some presentations were not clear and lacked planning. Hoping better interactive workshops in the future because most of the information I gained was when discussing with colleagues. I wish you gave opportunities to speakers who deal with practice tasks rather than theory.Thank you to the organizers; " a sincere smile is enough for me".

                                                                                                                        Ibtissem Boutbel

23. The topics presented by inspiring and resourceful speakers were complementary. In addition, we work with a great golden committee in a relaxing place. I find the conference as the most effective one of the year, yet I suggest including Skype activity in the next event.
                                                                                                                      Amina Belhandouz
*ELT Algeria Conference: A good idea worth trying

24. On the whole, the conference was good. Some remarks to consider: some presenters didn't succeed in narrowing down their topics and very few practical tasks were presented. I gained a lot of information from discussion, and unfortunately I couldn't attend all the workshops. Please, give more freedom to the participants to choose the roommate in the future.


*ELT Ageria Conference: This option is suggested in the frequently asked questions page (FAQ). 

25. Everything was available in this conference; very well-organized, interactive workshops, good presenters. I met new colleagues and we exchange ideas. Please, provide more handouts in the future. The conference was interesting, useful and effective. Thank you

                                                                                                                           Kamel Sili

26. The conference was a fruitful exeprience for me. The workshops I attended were very communicative , helped me gain a lot of new information and met all my expectation.The organizing were very helpful and welcoming. I wish the organizers tought of posters' exhibitions. Thank you for everything.

                                                                                                                                F.Z Reguieg

27. Everything is satisfactory. I like your professionalism, but they were not enough interactive activities in the workshops.Thank you.
                                                                                                                        A participant

28. ELT Algeria conference is so interesting that I would be happy if you organize it every term. ElT Algeria has changed my mood and made me know colleagues from different parts of the country. The facilitators were great. I do like them all. The venue is wonderful. Please, think of more practical activities in the future.

29. The conference is very well-organized from the beginning till the end. It exceed my expectations. I wish it lasted for more days. I like very much collaboration of the staff. Mesmerizing!
                                                                                                                   Asma Lahmar


30. Everything is positive in this conference; the organizers were engaged and helpful, the venue was satisfactory, however; try in the future to have the same topics in the same rooms. I was very happy and honored to attend this conference. All the best!

                                                                                                                    Fairouz Balharizi

31. The workshops were the most valuable aspect of this conference, however, I think that more time should be given to the speakers. I really appreciate every moment of this conference. We feel that  the organizers thought of everything. Please, keep this conference every year.

32. In some workshops, we didn't have the chance to interact.Huge amount of information was shared, but the objectives were not well-set. The things I like in the conference are, the organization, the respect of time and the venue. I would be happy to see 'micro-teaching and more practice in the next conference. Thank you for this great conference.

                                                                                                                        Asma Chafai

33. The workshops are very interesting, useful and fruitful. I really appreciate how they are presented. However, time was not enough.The conference venue (accommodation and food) could be better. It was so amazing. Thank you all; presenters, organizers and attendees. May Allah reward you.
                                                                                                                          Ghani Salima

34. The organizing committee watched over the confort of the guests (participants). I appreciate the social evening activities and the atmosphere set by the animators. Please, give more time to the speakers and to the panel discussion in the next conference. I hope to attend the next event with updated topics.

35. Some of the presentations lacked  clarity and innovation. The organizers were brilliant and professional and the venue was wonderful. I suggest dealing with 'Adapting the curriculum to the students' level' in the next conference. I feel really trilled. Thank you.

                                                                                                                      Yacine Kharouni

36. I am a novice teacher. I was delighted to attend ELT Algeria conference in Mostaghanem and happy to meet such great teachers and teacher-trainers.

Thank you for your efforts to inspire and motivate teachers to show them how to be effective. I designed this picture to show my recognition. I will be very happy to attend the next conference and learn from you.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Hanifa Meguellati

37. I really enjoyed myself during the whole stay and during the whole conference. I loved most of the workshops which inspired me. I learned many things and I'm very thankful. 
I have to say that there are some presentations which lacked preparation and content. In addition to some talkative people who  were present in the workshops and even during the social evening who really annoyed me. 
All in all, ELT ALGERIA was a therapy for me. It was a blessing. I wish it lasted until I go back to work.  
Looking forward to hearing about your coming events. 
                                                                                                                         Yacine kharouni 


38.  I felt happy after this event which was a real success because of the collaboration among organizers. I appreciated all the workshops' themes, but one hour is not enough to be delivered. I did not like two workshops at the same time, because participants will be confused where to attend, it is better to have workshops in different hours to be able to attend them all and have feedback afterwards. 

                                                                                                                             Louiza Belaid

39.   I liked mainly the organization including the respect of time and the planning of the conference. I liked the resort and the accommodation. 
Some of the workshops were not good and I wonder  how come they were accepted to present . Some of the workshops were just a repetition.
I wish next time there would be an organized trip to visit the most important touristic places .
                                                                                                                    Manel Hammouda
*ELT Algeria Conference: The workshops were selected by an independent review committee. Many others were not approved because they didn't meet the international conference criteria. We received abstracts, but we cannot predict and guarantee the quality of the workshop.


40. I liked the well-organised ELT Conference in terms of guidance to both rooms and even when we had coffee breaks.
2. I kindly would like to see presentations which rely on practice rather than theory.
Thanks a lot.
                                                                                                  Ahmed Hamadouch

41. The organizing staff was very professional and heartwarming. The venue was a very comfortable place. I learned many things from the workshops, but I think more time should be devoted to practical work. We need workshops on PBL and new techniques on teaching the writing skill. Thank you for this amazing  opportunity and keep up the good work.
                                                                                                                            Salem Fadila

42. The great organization of the conference made it perfect where it's hard to list anything. 

May be the time allocated to each workshop because many participants made this remark and the conference rooms which should be more practical. Another suggestion is a suitable place  with more than two rooms where teachers can choose.
I hope also a brochure to be made to help the teachers who did not attend have an idea about what we did.
I will inchaa allah forward you any other suggestions.
Best regard,
                                                                                                                           Samir Bounab
*ELTAlgeria Conference: Al Omara Residence has only two rooms and  we managed to work with. We would be very happy if the next venue would provide better working conditions. We are still waiting for serious suggestions. All educators around the country can have an idea about ELT Algeria conference presentations when reading the conference articles that will be published soon.
