1st ELT Academic Reading Group


December 20, 2015 by gemmalunn

I’m very excited that the first ELT Academic Reading Group, St. Gallen meeting will be on Sunday 17th January 14:15 in Ultimo Bacio Cafe (Poststrasse 14, 9000 St. Gallen).You can find more information about the group here.

The article for the first meeting is a summary of the book:

Vocabulary Myths: Applying Second Language Research to Classroom Teaching

The article provides plenty of interesting discussion points. Also, ELT Springboard (a similar group based in Basel) discussed this article at their last meeting so we can also compare our thoughts and opinions with theirs.


The group is open to all so please get in touch if you’d like to come along, you can comment below or email me at gemma_lunn@hotmail.com

If you are not based in St. Gallen but would still like to join in then please feel free to read the article and leave any thoughts below.

      Hi Karima, it would be great if you could join in. You could read the article and leave comments on my post and then others (including me) can do the same?

“The more radical the person is, the more fully he or she enters into reality so that, knowing it better, he or she can transform it. This individual is not afraid to confront, to listen, to see the world unveiled.― Paulo Freire
