Fellow and Colleagues Present Paper at International Conference at Al-Farabi Kazakh National University

Fellow Benjamin Taylor presented a jointly-written paper at an international linguistics conference at Al-Farabi University in Astana, Kazakhstan.   Called “Bridging the Gaps Between Kazakh and Western Perceptions of Time in the Workplace,” the presentation was aimed at analyzing how time-related language impacts workplace interactions between Kazakh and Western educators.

This presentation was beneficial to Taylor’s colleagues, students and staff in the TEFL department of Al-Farabi University. Not only did his colleagues have the opportunity to give a presentation in English at an international linguistics conference and publish a paper, but they also made contacts with people from other countries and universities who are currently in talks to pursue future cooperation with ENU. Feedback from conference attendees, organizers and colleagues was overwhelmingly positive.
