People are often amazed at the amount of content available on ELTNEWS.com. Having been around for over 10 years, it shouldn't be surprising that we have built up a fair bit of content but it's always hard with websites to get a full sense of what they contain. With a book or magazine, you can take its heft as a guide, but a website (or CD-ROM, or smartphone app) is much harder to judge.
So let's take a look around...
We have a veritable "Who's Who?" of ELT interviewed with the likes of Henry Widdowson, Mario Rinvolucri, Michael Swan, Catherine Walter, David Crystal and Raymond Murphy talking about their careers and their views on ELT.
Our jobs section is free for schools in Japan who use the ELTBOOKS.com online book service, and the section is visited by thousands each week. If you're looking for a job, or you're a school looking to find a teacher, then this is the place for you.
Our book reviews column is currently looking for a new reviewer (get in touch if you're interested) but has dozens of reviews of some of the most important books in ELT.
Our most popular, entertaining and controversial columnist, Mike is a superb writer who goes where angels fear to tread in his column, The Uni-Files. If you haven't been keeping up with Mike's views on the world of ELT, then you're missing out, plain and simple.
We have a searchable archive of the daily news going back to 2002. Diving in, it's interesting how the same news topics come around again and again...
And that's just scratching the surface. Here's a quick overview of the other sections of the site:
And of course, for those who are interested in buying English-language magazines and newspapers, there is our Japan Store.
So that's ELTNEWS.com. Remember you can also keep up to date on news through our Facebook Page, and if you would like to contribute to ELTNEWS.com then please get in touch. We're interested in news about your project, school or company and are always looking for good columnists who can write on a regular basis. If you don't want to write on a regular basis but have something important to say then, if we agree that others would like to hear it, we'll publish what you have to say in our Guest Column.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
