Vaud

Regional coordinator: Sharon Acton

ETAS Vaud is alive and kicking! Vaud currently has a membership of circa 50 members. These members range from trainee to experienced teachers, teacher trainers and school owners from both the private and public sectors. Vaud two workshops a year and tries to cater to the broad range of interests that members hold such as teaching young learners, corporate and business English, coaching individuals for exams, etc. Suggestions are always welcome! We recognize the importance of community, so we have been organizing quasi-monthly apéros to increase our members' networking opportunities. We make each other stronger! Quasi-monthly "SO-PRO" MIXERS -- during Spring (March-April-May) and Autumn (Sept-Oct-Nov) semesters (Autumn dates to be announced over the summer.) Come join us for our monthly social / professional networking apéros -- NEW LOCATION: Tibits Restaurant (Place de la Gare 11, at the far right of the FRONT of the Lausanne gare). Pay only whatever you eat or drink. And if you're heading home by train, just step out the back door and -- Bob's your uncle! -- you're on Platform 1!
