Baby, come back!

Although it's possible to join TESOL France at any time of year, most of our members join in the autumn. So today we sent out reminders and membership forms to everyone whose membership has lapsed; expect them in the post in the next few days.

This year, as well as receiving copies of the Teaching Times and attending all our workshops and colloquium, members are entitled to a 25% discount on online teacher development courses with ELT Advantage. For information on the courses, go to http://eltadvantage.ed2go.com/eltadvantage/. To benefit from the discount, contact Eileen Fryer at Eileen.Fryer@contractor.cengage.com .

But these benefits are open to members only. That means if you're planning to attend Sab's wonderful workshop on September 27th, you need to sign up quickly! Just sign and return the form with a cheque (and it's still only 44€!) in the envelope provided, and we look forward to seeing you again very soon.

New Workshop: Web 2.0 for Dummies (and English teachers!)

This is advanced notice of a workshop which I'll be running almost certainly on 27th September, 2008.

Here's the blurb:

Workshop: Web 2.0 for Dummies (and English teachers)
Sab Will, TESOL France Editor & Blogmaster
Date: 27 September 2008, 14h-17h
Venue: Paris Télécom

Following on from his successful presentation at the Best of BESIG Spring Day, and using a live internet connection, Sab leads you where few English teachers have gone before: right to the heart of the New Web. Discover how the average teacher can easily master and exploit some fascinating resources immediately with their students.

The idea is that we have plenty of time to show more examples and demos, ask more questions, and go into more detail on exactly how to use this amazing stuff in class.

Indeed, one of the main aims will be to combine my offerings with attendees' own experience to all get lots of new ideas and inspiration from the session.

So do book up and come along: the more the merrier!

If you have any questions then do leave a comment on this message and I'll answer it here so everyone can benefit.

See you there,
