ESL-SPIN at the ACTA/ACAL Conference

Blog

photoA Just a quick update as so much has been happening: this was the ESL-SPIN table at the ACTA/ACAL conference in Perth last month – a huge thank you to the organisers! We (that’s Clare and Karen) had a great location, just around the corner from the Language Centre Bookshop’s stall, and were able to chat to so many teachers about resources and publishing ideas. We don’t sell anything at our tables, just talk about what we all do, what ages and levels the resources might suit, noting down suggestions… it’s a very fun way to spend a day.

It was also exciting to realise that there are other ESOL/EAL teachers ‘out there’ writing and self-publishing. We met up with Pauline Bunce, who has just produced a resource for biscriptal learners – you can see sample pages on her website, and Clare has also interviewed her.

Then in the photo, Clare is holding a brand-new, ‘arrived in the post yesterday’ Australian grammar book from Helga Burry, Let’s Connect. 

Next we’ll report from Queensland, so watch this space…
