Where teachers meet and learn

ETAS e-Newsletter Archive

The monthly e-Newsletter is a means of keeping members up-to-date with what is happening within the ETAS in relation to notifications from the Executive Committee and the National Council, Regional events, Special Interest Group happenings, member news, as well as forthcoming Journal publications and other special projects. It is also a medium which enables us as a language teaching association to share practical teaching material and links to English language teaching resources with one another. Hence, the ETAS e-Newsletter is not only delivered on a monthly basis by email to members but is also published here in the form of a collection so that resources can be easily accessed and used as desired.
