Symposium on English Studies

Our senior lecturer, Akun and the Deputy Head of English department, Irfan Rifai attended a one – day symposium organized by the University of Indonesia on September 11, 2014 as speakers. The organizer took the initiative of inviting regional representatives of English studies in universities in Indonesia with the thought of strengthening the bond and opening up opportunities for future collaborations. The symposium was attended by 3 groups of English studies in Indonesia, namely, education department (PBI), English literature, and STIBAs.
