Professional Development - It's Easy To Stay Informed...

As teachers, it's critical that we keep up-to-date on the current trends in teaching. But some of us are far away from universities or other places where ESL teaching is a common topic of conversation. But that doesn’t mean that we have to miss out on any professional developments or ideas. If you have an Internet connection, you can read some great publications that are dedicated to advancing the art of teaching English as a second language. Here's a list of some of great ones:

The Internet TESL Journal:
