ELT Spain

I began looking for events or teachers' associations the moment I started living in Spain.
The problem is... it's all kind of chaotic in here!

There's TESOL Spain that organizes a conference once a year but unless you live in Madrid or Barcelona, your chances of being close to any form of professional development are rather slim. If you don't specifically look for an event, there is no way you'll find it.

That is why I've decided to create a ELT Spain page on Facebook. It's a site for any enthusiastic EFL teachers based in Spain (and not only!). I created it as a meeting place - hopefully, it'll become a great sharing and developing centre in the future.
Anyone can post on the ELT Spain wall, as long as you're going to tell us something related to ELT of course :)

Do you want to share an interesting idea?
Have you heard of an ELT event organized in your area?

Feel free to contribute and join in!


  1. Hi, nice idea!

    Some info...

    Not sure about up north, but down south we've got ACEIA in Andalucia (conference in Seville last weekend) and Tefl del Sur in Cadiz. TESOL Spain is in Bilbao in 2012. Spainwise is an organisation based in Cordoba and has a job fair with some talks and a very useful website.

  2. Thanks a lot Richard!
    Yeah, I've heard of these but as you've said, in the north, it's kinda different :)
    All in all, I think it's a good idea to keep ALL that information together - hope it's going to work!

  3. Just found your blog, Anita, and met Igor Rodriguez who was talking up TESOL Spain's conference at TESOL France a few weeks back. Sounds like a great event.

    Look forward to following your blog. Cheers, Brad

  4. Nice to see you here Brad!
    Hope you're going to join us in Bilbao next year :)
