Welcome message by the President of ACG

Welcome to Athens and to the 7th International Conference of English as a Lingua Franca!

We are delighted for the opportunity to host ELF7 on the main campus of The American College of Greece. Over the years, we have had the privilege of hosting numerous significant delegations and events, including the US Olympic team for the 2004 Athens Olympics. While ELF7 conferees may not have sights set on new world records, we realize how important the topics engaged in these proceedings are for advancing international education. Therefore, we want to do everything we can to support your important work and to make your experience in Greece as enjoyable as possible.

Please let us know any way we can facilitate your good work in your sojourn with us.

Again, welcome. We wish you the very best.

David G. Horner, Ph.D.
The American College of Greece
