Stringing Elt Pearls
Asingle drop of water enters a mollusc, passes through several layers of creativity and transforms into a pearl; a symbol of unblemished perfection. It exposes a world full of purity, magnificence, splendour and beauty. A pearl provides a clear vehicle for the advancing states of embellishment as well as a clear channel for receipt of guidance. It opens up traits of innate talent and gives constant fuel to the fire of imagination.
Teachers of English at their end symbolize pearls in the ocean of knowledge with the richness of exposition, perception, fascination and inspiration. As the ocean is a symbol of power and strength which dominates all signs of water, ease, grace and fluidity running parallel to the teachers who symbolize a fountainhead of knowledge, light, integrity and transformation. Just as pearls are not generated overnight, they need to be nurtured with concentric layer upon layer of nacre, likewise, the teachers’ journey through charted and uncharted pathways for acquiring excellence enriching themselves with multidimensional techniques of teaching, adding to their value and lustre. A glowing and glittering pearl has always been valued as a gemstone, an object of beauty and delight. Similarly, a proficient and brilliant teacher becomes a rarity, an invaluable asset to an institution. Like pearls, teachers can stimulate and nurture the thought processes, imagination and creativity.
SPELT is the clasp that strings the Pearls of ELT together and embodies in itself endosymbiosis and mutualism, creating a relationship that benefits all. It equips teachers with strength and resilience skills to face the myriad challenges of the 21st Century..
SPELT 30th International Conference aims to focus on the iridescent strategies of English Language Teaching through a variety of workshops, seminars, webinars, colloquiums, panel, discussions, leadership strands, research and SIGs as genres of English Language Teaching from across the globe.
The drop of water reminds you “what you were” and the pearl suggests “what you can be” by undergoing metamorphism, thereby, acquiring attributes of flawlessness.
