ELTAU e.V. organises a wide range of activities for English language trainers in the Ulm/Neu-Ulm area. Publisher-sponsored events cater to the needs of the modern EFL trainer and aim to bring participants up-to-date information as well as practical ideas. Talks and workshops led by independent trainers cover a spectrum of skills associated with language training.
We aim to organise a programme of events which appeals to a variety of English Language trainers covering General English, Business English and English for Specific Purposes.
Members-only events encourage networking with the most important ELT resource at our fingertips: you! Information and lesson swaps, as well as informal gatherings give our members the chance to get to know others in their field, which is beneficial both to career and to day-to-day preparation and class management.
With your ELTAU e.V. membership you are welcome to attend events at our partners throughout Germany under the same conditions as local members of that ELTA association. For an overview of the events on offer, click here:

A dummy's guide to teaching: avoiding “simple” mistakes in the EFL classroom
Helen Strong is a business English trainer and teacher trainer based in Ingolstadt. Having trained many teachers in a variety of contexts, Helen is only too aware of the “simple” mistakes that teachers can make in the classroom and in designing materials.
This workshop aims to provide a “back to basics” look at some standard teaching techniques which, when neglected, can make the difference between a good lesson and a great one. Participants will experience taking part in a “not so effective” lesson and have the chance to analyse what went wrong and what improvements could be made. In the second part of the workshop, we will take closer look at how to design meaningful tasks when exploiting a text. Participants will leave the workshop with a clearer idea of some of the key features which go into making lessons successful.
