Please join us in celebrating the centenary of Modern Languages Teacher Education at the University of Sydney.

In honour of this historic milestone, the Faculty of Education and Social Work in conjunction with the Modern Language Teachers’ Association of New South Wales (MLTA NSW) will be hosting a cocktail reception on Friday, 18 March 2016.

"The Faculty of Education and Social Work is proud of its long history in language teacher education," said the Dean, Professor Diane Mayer.

"As a diverse and internationally renowned community of scholars and students committed to innovative, research-led and reflective teaching and learning, we currently prepare undergraduate and preservice language teachers for eleven different languages.

"We are proud of the difference our language teacher graduates have made to the lives of many young students to explore new language codes and cultural information or to investigate their heritage and personal narrative.

"Together with the professional association, the MLTA of NSW, I look forward to celebrating accomplished and passionate teachers of languages and cultures who change their students’ lives for the better".

The reception will follow the MLTA’s Annual Conference on Friday the 18th of March.

The evening will also see the launch of a commemorative booklet, celebrating our accomplished language teaching alumni throughout the last 100 years.
