The next ELT Springboard meeting is scheduled for 29 November at 8pm and we will meet once again at The Fitting Room in Welle7. I look forward to seeing you there! Please RSVP in the comments if you can so we know approximately how many people to expect.

This month I’d like to discuss an interesting article I found from Dr Gianfranco Conti, Five mixed messages that have severely damaged modern language education. As you read the article, think about the myths and how they relate to your personal experience: how aware are you of these myths as you teach, do you agree with Dr Conti’s assertions, what (if anything) do you do to challenge these myths? I’ll bring some discussion questions on the evening, but the article should provide plenty of food for thought on its own. See you soon!
