The new year brings my last post for ELTNEWS.com. Other commitments have meant that I haven't had time for the site, and we haven't been able to find a suitable editor in Japan who's available.
So what to do? Well, necessity being the mother of invention, we've decided to take the site global and have news and features on the whole world of English language teaching. We'll be looking for an editor and hope to get going in May. I won't be involved but Matthias Reich who runs ELT Services Limited (the owner of ELTNEWS.com) will be organising things. So if you're interested in becoming the editor of ELTNEWS.com, or writing for it, get in touch with him.
I set up ELTNEWS.com as a service for teachers in Japan back in 1998. Hard to believe it's been nearly 15 years... Over the years the site has had its highs and lows but I'd like to thank all of our editors and contributors over the years who have helped build ELTNEWS.com into a respected part of the ELT community.
Whilst waiting for the new global version of ELTNEWS.com to get off the ground, why not take a look at the following archives:
English Teaching News Archives (going back to 2002!).
English Teaching Article Archives (some GREAT stuff here).
