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 has a membership of approximately 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 our Baden branch's awareness of current teaching practices.

The St. Gallen region counts approximately 70 members: enthusiastic and dedicated teachers who find further education and socialising inspiring. 


We strive to offer a mix of educational, informative and fun regional events throughout the year.  Past gatherings have included representatives from book publishers, workshops on classroom management and teaching styles, and casual networking aperitifs to share ideas with peers. We are always open to suggestions on future events.  Please contact us!


This beautiful bilingual canton boasts 2,400 km of ski runs, 8,000 km of marked hiking trails, 2,000 annual hours of sunshine, 676 glaciers, a third of Switzerland's vineyards - with nearly 60 different grape varieties - and 6 thermal baths. 


Vaud currently has a membership of circa 40 members, ranging from trainee to experienced teachers, teacher trainers and school owners from both the private and public sectors. With the goal of holding a minimum of two workshops a year, we try to cater to the broad range of interests that members hold such as teaching young learners/teens, corporate/business English, exam coaching, etc.  Sharon's goal for 2019/20 is (1) to organize pertinent workshops appealing to a broad spectrum of teachers and (2) to offer numerous social/networking opportunities so as to strengthen the community bond between Vaud/Fribourg members. Do join us!
