How soon do I have to register?

This conference has sold out 6 years in a row. Every year it sells our earlier and earlier! Registration closed June 21, 2021.

 

Due to limited space and high demand, we can not hold spaces.  Registration will not confirmed until payment or a purchase order is received. If you register without submitting payment, and your payment is not received by the deadline stipulated on your confirmation, your spot will be released to another. Note that if you have not paid by the date of a scheduled rate increase, your registration fee will increase to the current posted rate.

Is there a partial-conference registration option?

Due to limited capacity and high demand for this conference, we are unable to allow registration for individual days. Allowing partial registration could potentially prevent another teacher from attending the entire conference. Conference capacity is set for the overall conference, not for each day. Once we reach capacity, we close registration, and that means that a partial registration would eliminate someone who registered later from participating. If we have not reached capacity a week before the conference, we may allow partial registration on a case-by-case basis.

Is there a lower registration fee for teachers working abroad?

To keep conference costs fair and at a minimum for all participants, we are unable to offer any discounts, regardless of your country of residency. Put another way, the cost to put on a conference of this magnitude is the same no matter where participants come from.

What is the cancellation policy?

If you cancel on or before May 31, 2021, you will be assessed a cancellation fee of $50 per person. No refunds, FOR ANY REASON, after May 31, 2021.

 

After May 31, a $25 service will apply to any registration that is transferred to a new attendee.  Before registration can be transferred, the change fee payment must be received by Fluency Matters via credit card by calling (800) 877-4738.

 

Once you have registered, you will have until May 31, 2021 to make changes to your registration. After May 31, 2021, a $25 service will apply to any change(s) made to your registration. Once you submit your registration and your registration is processed (2 business days), a $10 fee will apply for any changes to your conference registration. After June 15, 2021, NO changes to your conference registration will be allowed. WHY?… Because conference organizers immediately begin analyzing your registration information to carefully place each participant in the most appropriate group. This takes an enormous amount of time, and each shift we make to one’s registration can have a domino effect on our grouping of cohorts. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!

How do I know which cohort is best for me?

We strongly encourage you to carefully select your cohort BEFORE you register.

What makes this iFLT Conference different from other conferences?

      1. iFLT has a broad vision of teaching for acquisition. The goal is not to limit you to learning just one approach, but to help you hone your skills in ANY approach that is aligned with the principles of SLA and proven to facilitate acquisition.  iFLT maintains a holistic approach to training,  featuring powerful workshops with embedded small group coaching and collaboration where teachers will work with the same team of expert presenters, coaches and trainers each day of the conference.
      2. Beginning in 201iFLT, with the guidance of Diana Noonan, iFLT was the first conference to feature Language Labs, which are live language classes with real students. iFLT continues to offer five days, three languages, six classes and six of the nation’s top SLA-focused instructors.  The iFLT concept is simple, yet powerful!
      3. There are 3 simple steps to iFLT training:
        a) Watch live language classes, observing students and MASTER teachers in action.
        b) Train with the nation’s top presenters and learn various techniques appropriate for novice to experienced CI/TPRS practitioners.
        c) Practice specific techniques that are relevant to your skill level and your teaching situation. Get personalized guided practice with seasoned coaches who have been highly trained in CI-based instruction.
      4. At iFLT all attendees are trained within small groups of teachers who all are at the same experience level in knowledge and expertise in teaching towards Language Acquisition.
            a.  Teachers new to iFLT and ADI have a built in community for the week.
            b.  Teachers will work with the same team of expert presenters, coaches and trainers.
