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:

Commercial and legal aspects of being a freelance teacher in Germany
About the speaker: Patrick Mustu is a lawyer, language trainer and translator based in Düsseldorf.
While many events focus on the “content” side of teaching, this workshop will address teachers’ worries beyond the classroom:
- What are the problems and grievances we are confronted with?
- What about teaching requirements and working conditions?
- How does our service translate into money, and how much do (and should) we earn?
- Do we need fee agreements, do we have to put up with non-competition and penalty clauses?
- What should teachers know about taxes and other red-tape issues?
This will be a hands-on, “no-theory“ workshop. Join us for a day full of surprises and controversies. We will come across simply unbelievable working conditions, illegal practices, void contract provisions, misconceptions and an array of important red-tape issues.
registration by email (email@example.com) and transfer of attendance fee (25€ members of an ELTA; 35€ non-members of an ELTA) before 20th November
