MELTA News »

MELTA News is published three times a year, in spring, summer and autumn and is circulated to all MELTA members. The magazine reflects the professional interests of the organisation with articles on a broad range of ELT topics contributed by MELTA members.

A typical issue contains reviews of MELTA workshops and papers on topical and regional issues in the world of ELT. Book reviews and tried and tested teaching ideas provide tangible support, as does a regular column on harnessing the internet for teaching.  As the principle means of communcation with the membership there is always news from the committee, interviews with members and listings of upcoming events.

The editor welcomes contributions from any of our members at any time of the year. The editorial deadlines are February 15th, June 15th and October 15th.
