ELTECS: Asian Networking
Chulalongkorn University, Thailand
In this challenging age of globalization where national boundaries are
merging for common causes, objectives and interests, most ELT professional
will appreciate being linked to a network to serve their professional needs
and enhance their know-how. This is where ELTECS can play a useful role.
The ELTECS mission statement and the kind of support and professional
development services that the network provides will be detailed. The activities
of ELTECS Europe which are evolving to a self-sustaining level are then
described together with the more recent successful launch of ELTECS China.
The scenario is now set for the formation of an ELTECS East Asia and
participants are invited to become members at no cost, except for a small
investment of time to keep up with the reading of and responding to messages
and materials which are delivered either by snail mail or email.
The aims and objectives of ELTECS East Asia will be discussed with the
hope of generating some concrete ideas on how it can support and sustain
the professional development of ELT in this part of the world.
