Are you looking for an online space that unites teachers, gives you a community of like-minded colleagues and helps to practice English? Then join us!
SELF Space is the English-speaking part of Project SELF
In the past, we have organised a number of events for teachers and edupreneurs in English (meet-ups, conferences, bookclubs etc.), but then had to pause and concentrate on other parts of the project. Now the time has come to revive and recreate.
Use your English outside the classroom in a friendly teachers' community
What do you do for yourself in English? Here you can read books and share your teaching ideas, watch films connected to education or self-development, discuss burning ELT or life topics. You will find new friends and make new connections.
