The 1st International ELT Symposium titled as WIRED IN OR OUT, took place on 1-2 December 2012 at the Yildiz Central Campus. After the opening talk of professor Ayvaz, the students of Physical Education department performed a wonderful traditional folk dance. On the second day, the symposium ended with a great music performance given by the students of Yildiz Technical University.
Thanks to the efforts of the members of the organization committee of Yildiz Technical University, The School of Foreign Languages, speakers, poster presenters and the sponsors of The 1st International ELT Symposium. As an English teacher, I hope there will be increasing numbers of symposiums, conferences that help exchanging ideas among the participants.
