Join us on Thursday 6th November for our latest webinar with Chris Baldwin: Learning Technologies for the Classroom - A whirlwind tour

Applications for the 2015 ELTons close in less than three weeks! The British Council Innovation Awards are offered to outstanding new language learning products and services, and aspiring ELT authors. Any ELT professional can apply for consideration for one of the categories including authors, teachers, trainers and publishers.

Our great new monthly lesson plan for October looks at the topic of eating snacks and is designed to help teenage and adult students develop their ability to record and retain vocabulary.

Download and use the lesson plans from our Using images teaching resources for low-level and high-level students. Each plan combines photos from ELTPics with audio and teacher's notes to help get your students activating their higher level thinking skills.

If you missed the Dylan Thomas live webcast with Hannah Ellis, Thomas's granddaughter, and Guy Masterson, Olivier award winner, you can still watch a recording of the event.
