Tokyo ELT Expo/TEL

Hundreds of English teachers made their way to Sunshine City in Ikebukuro over the weekend for the city's major ELT event of the year. The Tokyo stop of the ELT Expo caravan teamed up again with the annual Tokyo English Language Book Fair. There were dozens of presentations on a variety of topics such as bilingualism, phonics, and teaching learners of all ages. All the major ELT publishers, a few minor ones, and some new faces were there, and some even got into the Halloween spirit a day early! The two intrepid "spuds" in the photo are staff from Oxford University Press, dressed up to promote their popular Potato Pals series. Author Patrick Jackson gave one of the 30 presentations on Sunday. There are still four more Expos to go, in Hokkaido (Nov. 6), Kansai (Nov. 13), Chubu (Nov. 20) and Chugoku (Dec. 4). See the ETJ website for more details.
