April 26 #ELTchat topic:

Language Needs of Very Advanced Learners 






Advanced learners and their language needs is a topic that has not been discussed enough in #ELTchat. It is however something that is of relevance to most teachers, considering some teachers are advanced language learners themselves.



This promises to be a topic of interest to most of us! Join us tomorrow 🙂 



April 19 #ELTchat topic:

Exploring your options in ELT.


At #IATEFL2017 conference, there was a lot of discussion about possible next steps in one’s career in ELT.  It seems this is something that most people think about a lot. In the past, we had two #ELTchats on this topic. One in 2013 and another one in 2015. It’s interesting to see what has changed, how and if people think differently about their careers.


Here’s the summary of the 2013 chat (click here) written by Sue Annan, and

This promises to be an interesting topic so let’s chat!
