0.5 Why we need TTELT
This episode is about why English Language Teachers need TTELT and why ongoing teacher training is so important to maintaining quality teaching around the world.   Through TTELT teachers can benefit from having a network of teachers to work with as they try implementing the ideas they get from the podcast, YouTube channel, and workshops.  However, all of these things need funding in order to be sustainable.   This is why we urge you to go to https://www.patreon.com/ttelt  if you are able to support English language teachers on their journeys to becoming more engaging teachers.   Find us at https://www.ttelt.org/  Voicemail: https://anchor.fm/ttelt/message  Facebook group: TTELT  Twitter: ttelt1  Instagram: t.telt Music by DoKashiteru_-_Through_the_Tunnel_2

0.0 Welcome to TTELT: Teaching Tips for English Language Teachers
TTELT is a podcast for English language teachers who never seem to find the time for the professional development we want and need.  Many episodes will be quick tips that we can implement in our classes this week, discussions of journal articles and blogs in our field, and interviews with prominent, and not so prominent, teachers who have tips they'd like to share.
