Upon returning to Pakistan, the teachers met with U.S. Embassy Regional English Language Officer Jen MacArthur to discuss preparing similar workshops for their own institutions and communities in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, and Sindh.
“The NELTA conference gave me the chance to share my unique teaching experience with other professionals,” said Qurratulain Najeeb, a lecturer at the National College of Business Administration and Economics in Bahawalpur.
