PanSIG 2022 Equal Voices in ELT (Platinum EVE)

What?  EVE stands for Equal Voices in ELT. It is an initiative that we originally created to recognise both gender and highly proficient speaker * parity in keynote and plenary line-ups* for ELT conferences and events worldwide. We began with a suite of three badges recognising gender parity, L1/L2 speaker parity and a combination of both, then in 2022, the badges were modified to recognise a greater degree of representation and inclusion.

Sat, Jul 9, 15:15-15:40: Nation’s Four Strands and Digital Language Pedagogy with ZenGengo

Supercharge your language teaching with ZenGengo!

Whether your classes are face-to-face, blended, hybrid or fully online, ZenGengo helps language teachers to create engaging and interactive online assignments in just minutes.

With 10 assignment types that have been specially designed for language learning, ZenGengo covers all 4 language skills: listening, reading, writing, and speaking. Features such as AI voice recognition, text-to-speech, and auto-grading save teachers countless hours while ensuring that students remain motivated and challenged on the path to greater proficiency.

Personalized scoring and feedback are available for Audio Recordings, Video Recordings and Written Reports. Feedback is simple to administer and can be offered in three modalities: text, audio and video.

Free Lesson Library

ZenGengo also has a large (and ever-growing) library of pre-made content. No subscription is required to browse lessons or share them with your students, but those who join ZenGengo can import and modify lessons as well as track student progress and administer feedback. The library can be searched by title or by CEFR level, and you’re sure to find plenty of inspiration for your language classes.

ZenGengo Academy

Just for Japan, we have recently launched ZenGengo Academy, an online service for providing CEFR-levelled homework tasks aimed at university students. Teachers can use the platform for free while students purchase access cards from the campus bookstore. Those interested in signing up for ZenGengo Academy should contact us directly at
