The Association of Latin American British Cultural Institutes (LABCI) is hosting its sixteenth biennial conference in Mexico City. The conference will be welcoming English language teachers (ELT), academic coordinators, publishers and ELT suppliers from around the world to its three-day conference. The key topics will include:

• the role of digital learning in English as a foreign language

At this conference, delegates will hear a keynote presentation from Saul Nassé, Chief Executive of our daughter company, Cambridge English Language Assessment, on Big isn't always best: using the right data for language learning. He will talk about how the use of data in this information age is becoming a key debate in society. He will also explore the role of data in language learning and how it creates an environment for personalised learning or conformity.
