Christine Holland (MA TESOL Graduate Student) attended the International Maritime English Conference-27 (IMEC-27) in Johor, Malaysia, 12-16 September.

At the conference, Christine co-presented a workshop with colleague, Annemaria Gabrielli, English Lecturer at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. The workshop presented a brief overview of language learning categories and asked participants to reflect upon their own language learning strategies and how they might integrate those teaching learning strategies into the classroom.  Christine’s ability to attend the conference and network with experts in the field of Maritime English was in part due to the Nattinger Fellowship award.
