These workshops were presented in the Conference in the Cloud 2023. Conference in the Cloud is an incredible opportunity for language teachers from all over the world to experience acquisition-driven teaching strategies first hand through observing teachers teaching their students in their classrooms (different ages and levels of French, Spanish, Latin, and Mandarin), participating in classes as a student, and engaging in workshops to help you learn valuable strategies and teaching techniques. Zumba and yoga classes are offered throughout the day to keep you moving! Lunchtime discussions and evening social hours allow you to connect with other participants and make new friends. We hope you will join us in 2024! Learn more here.

Our presenters and instructors are all leaders in the field of acquisition-driven/ comprehensible-input based language teaching.

This is my third year in a row attending Express Fluency's conference, and I would not trade it for anything. It is worth more than the price tag. -- Anonymous (from our Padlet page)

There are always simultaneous sessions over which I am torn during in person CI conferences with many amazing presenters. And I always regret having to choose one session over the other.

The name [of the conference] is perfect, because I am on Cloud 9.-- Angie
