Extensive Reading Around the World Visit the 2022 conference here: :

13th to 15th August 2021 with workshops on 12th and 16th.

An online event hosted by the Extensive Reading Foundation

This event came about as a stepping stone towards the Sixth Extensive Reading World Congress, (ERWC6) which has been rescheduled for August, 2022 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

We have tried to develop a well-rounded, representative program that addresses issues related to all levels and styles of Extensive Reading. Rather than running concurrently, each session will begin in the main conference room. Breakout rooms will be available for discussions with presenters or with other attendees.
