Our goal with What is ELT? is to help teachers, aspiring teachers and teacher educators with a quick reference guide of terminology, concepts and tools for the practice of English language teaching and professional development.

 

More than simple definitions, here you will find thoughts on the classroom implications of each topic, as well as suggestions on how to use them to boost lessons and continue developing professionally.

We hope to make What is ELT? more and more relevant by adding new topics and terms frequently. So, let us know what topic you'd be ineterested in and make sure you subscribe and follow us on our social media channels to know when a new post comes out!

Cheers,

What is ELT? Team
