U.S. Embassy and English Language Teachers’ Association (ELTA Serbia) will provide English language instruction to 25 students, ages 13-15, from economically disadvantaged families in Belgrade. The program will target students who have excelled academically and have limited opportunities to study English.

This program will give the Access teachers the opportunity to be part of a committed and professional team. Teachers will learn and share best practices in English teaching and grow professionally. This experience will strengthen their opportunities to participate successfully in their community’s socio-economic development and also apply for future U.S. educational and exchange programs. In addition, the participants will become familiar with many aspects of U.S. culture and thus develop a deeper understanding of current issues in U.S. society.

The English Access Microscholarship Program is currently seeking qualified English Teachers to start classes on October 13, 2014.  Classes are Monday through Friday, 3 hours weekly for two years.

The English Access Microscholarship Program is also seeking qualified English Teachers for Intensive sessions which will take place in January 2015 (one week).

ELTA Journal – Call for Papers for English Teachers in Serbia

Dear fellow teachers,

The ELTA Newsletter editorial team is proud to inform you that ELTA is initiating a new online publication – ELTA Journal. We invite primary and secondary school teachers as well as their colleagues in private language schools to participate in this exciting new project.

This semi-academic journal will continue the rich tradition of ELTA newsletter and magazine MELT, which have been published since 2003 and readily accept papers of quality that can be theoretical or examples of individual teaching practice or research in the field of ELT.

The vision of this journal is to be submitted for scientific categorization to our Ministry of Education and thus promote our teaching profession and provide you, teachers, with a practical benefit from your contributions. ELTA Journal is meant to:

▪ help our local ELT community to deepen the understanding of its practice;

▪ promote sharing among professionals;

▪ allow teachers to gain points towards professional development

The journal will represent a unique knowledge bank, which you will refer to in order to gain a little more insight into theoretical backgrounds behind certain aspects of your work or get a glimpse of new ideas and latest methodologies you might implement in your own teaching. It will also publish foreign researchers’ papers which will internationalise it and put our teachers on a broader ELT map.

We hope you take this opportunity to analyse your own practice as teachers and consider a topic of your own interest for an article in the journal. Our team is at your disposal for guidance and support should you have doubts regarding any aspect of your writing, structure- or content-wise.

Please contact our team if you are interested at newsletter.elta@gmail.com

Yours sincerely,

ELTA Newsletter editorial team
