Speaker of 2018 Conference:
"The conference has been a great opportunity to share ideas and concerns within professional community and discover new challenges that ESP and EFL in general might face in the nearest future. And, of course, it has been very nice and inspirational to learn how many people from different cities and institutions actually share the same professional beliefs."
"It was nice to meet so many enthusiasts of ESP in one place. I greatly enjoyed the friendly and highly professional atmosphere of the conference, all the sessions I attended were practice-oriented, very productive and motivating."
