Dear colleagues,

Do you think you can write? Do you think you can review ELT e-books? Then, this is your chance!

Phil Wade and several other independent ELT authors (Jorge Sette, Adam Simpson, Katherine Bilsborough, Cecilia Lemos, etc.) got together and started publishing their own books independently. They are asking for reviewers and we are on board!

This is the site with all the information about what they are trying to achieve: https://eltebooks.wordpress.com

If you believe you can contribute, feel free to have a look at the e-books and pick the one you would like to review. The next deadline is January 1, 2016.

Once you have written the review, you can send it to newsletter.elta@gmail.com.

English Access Microscholarship Program Award Ceremony

On October 15, cultural attaché of the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade, Ms Erika Kuenne, delivered certificates of award to the new class of English Access Microscholarship students in Serbia. The opening ceremony was held at the Municipal Library Petar Kocic in Belgrade and attended by 25 students and their proud parents.

Funded by the U.S. Department of State and implemented by U.S. Embassy Serbia and English Language Teachers’ Association – ELTA, the Access program provides two years of English language instruction to 13–15 year-old students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Through after-school courses, intensive summer sessions, cultural activities and enhancement seminars, Access students acquire English language skills, improve their knowledge of the American culture, and develop greater sensitivity to cultural differences. The ultimate goal of the program is to increase the student’s opportunities in the formal economy and make them more competitive for higher education awards and scholarships in the United States and in other countries.

14th ELTA Serbia Conference

Learning, relationships, and education are a painstaking endeavor, much like nurturing a garden. It takes time and effort to grow.

What best teachers do is, they teach people, not programs. They provide conditions for their students to grow. They pay attention to each and every student. They listen. They never stop learning. They adopt and adapt. They make a difference.

Are you one of those teachers?

What is obvious to you, might be amazing to others – share your knowledge and experience with us at 14th ELTA Conference!

Abstract submission deadline: 8 March 2016
Early bird registration deadline: 22 April 2016
