TEDxUniversity: Promoting Ideas, Global Citizenship and English Fluency

Fast, Thomas Kaken ID
TED Talks are short, passionate and engaging speeches by experts on important topics. Delivered at TED conferences, they are recorded for all to see freely online. Recently there have been a growing number of smaller TED-sanctioned but independently organized “TEDx” conferences taking place throughout the world. This paper reflects on a visit to TEDxYouth@Kyoto 2013, a conference held by Kyoto area university students, and addresses why involving language learners in TEDx conferences might prove beneficial, not only for sharing ideas, but also for English practice and development as global citizens.
