The ETAS Regions

The ETAS regions bring ETAS events to where the members are.

Apart from national events, ETAS organises regional events that are open to members and non-members alike. Every region caters for the English teachers of their region, taking into account the membership structure, their professional activities and subsequent needs. One or two Regional Coordinators are in regular contact with their membership to be able to address their needs.

Read on and find out about ETAS in the region near you.

Baden

Baden has a membership of about 50 people of varied interests and backgrounds. Our aim is to have a workshop or get-together every 3-4 months. Drawing from our members' rich pool of talent and expertise, plus reaching out to other ETAS professionals, we will continue to improve the Baden branch's awareness of current teaching practices.
