ELT Concourse

This is a free resource for English Language teachers, teachers in training, teacher trainers and learners of English

ELT Concourse carries no advertising, does not allow promotional links from materials and does not require its users to sign up or register to access any part of the site.  It doesn't use cookies, either, or gather any information from users except that which you submit.

You can read the charter in PDF format which sets things out in more detail.

The only exception to the non-commercial links rule is to note that the domain name and the server facilities for this site have been kindly donated by ARHosting Solutions, who are, of course, not responsible for any of the content.
Without their help including virtually instant, courteous and knowledgeable support, this site would not be possible.

Teaching and training online

Currently, because of the Covid-19 outbreak, many teachers and trainers are moving their face-to-face work to online and virtual classrooms.
ELT Concourse is an online resource, of course, and help is at hand.
There is a guide you can access here to how to teach online, what facilities you will need, how to plan online teaching and how to find materials on this site to help you whether you are a teacher of English or a trainer of teachers of English (or both).
