A space of collaboration
ELT today is a website/blog for educators and teachers to share insights on English language teaching within the ELT community.
It is a space of collaboration from teachers, to teachers, where teacher colleagues post articles, videos and promote webinars on their topic of preference.
We strongly believe that "sharing is caring" and this is the whole purpose of ELT today: For ELT teachers to share their teaching practice and help fellow colleagues.
We really look forward to having your contributions and ideas here.
