As the World Health Organisation declared a global pandemic and every country is now becoming strict on implementing safety measures due to COVID-19, GEN TEFL decided to reschedule the date of the 5th GEN TEFL International Conference to 1 – 2 May 2021. The well-being and safety of all GEN TEFL participants is our most extreme concern. 

All registered and confirmed participants and presenters will be automatically included in the program for Vietnam on 1 - 2 May 2021 at no additional cost. The place and venue for the conference will remain unchanged. 
We hope that with this delay, more participants will be able to join us next year.

We believe that there's a light at the end of this unprecedented situation. While preparing for GEN TEFL 2021, please stay safe.
