ELTA Newsletter: November 2018

 
“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
― John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

 

Dear colleagues,

Sometimes time travels so fast it is hard to keep up. So, we are already in the beginning of winter and fast forward to the end of 2018. Since our last issue, the Autumn one, all of us have been already incredibly busy but some of you have been even busier writing for us. We have already received an amazing number of articles and reports and more keep coming in. We are very happy that our call during our May conference and the AG meeting encouraged you to share your work with us.

This is really an issue full of interesting articles and reports! We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of the ELTA family who have been reading us, encouraging us to continue, sending us your work or your students’ work. Without you we couldn’t have made it! Do not forget you can send us your submissions any time you want at newsletter.elta@gmail.com. Stay in touch!

ELTA Journal Volume 2 No. 2

Dear colleagues,

ELTA is proud to present the second issue of ELTA Journal.

In this first issue, last December, we presented the ideas that have shaped the creation of ELTA Journal and, this year, we would like to introduce new ideas that have guided us in developing this issue. Our aim was to connect research and practice and to present some theoretical considerations in the field of ELT. Our journal is blind peer-reviewed, allowing our authors to have their articles rechecked, reevaluated and inspected by unbiased experts.

Carefully selected articles that we have prepared for you in this issue are written by teachers, associate professors and researchers in the ELT field. For some authors this is another way of reflecting on their practice and, for others, this is a form of teacher development.

We hope you enjoy reading this issue and we look forward to receiving your feedback and article contributions for our next issue.

Yours faithfully,

ELTA Journal Editorial Team

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
