TDSIG MEMBERS: Win a free standard entrance to the Innovate ELT Conference on May 17th and 18th 2019 in Barcelona! This exciting conference marks five years of new ideas, collaborations, and connections between teachers, students, publishers, writers and other English Language Teaching professionals.


The theme in 2019 is ‘Back to the Future’. To kick off, attendees will be reflecting on how the ELT industry has developed over the last five years. We will talk about the lessons we have learned, the myths we’ve debunked and how our work has been impacted in the process.

Then, we will cast our eyes five years ahead and think about what’s in store for English Language Teaching, what skills will thrive, and how our community can pull together to shape an industry we all want to continue working in. One activity will be to create a time capsule.

For your chance to join one of the most exciting ELT conferences around, all you need to do is:
