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:

Tailor-making materials for corporate clients
Evan Frendo is a freelance trainer, teacher trainer and author based in Berlin. A frequent speaker at conferences, he also travels regularly in Europe and Asia to run courses or to work as a consultant. You can find out more about who he is and what he does at www.e4b.de, or read his blog englishfortheworkplace.blogspot.com.
I spend a lot of my time developing tailor-made materials for corporate clients. These
materials are quite different to what we find in course books because they are based on an
analysis of the way language is actually used in a company, as well as the specific needs of
the client. In other words, they are based on evidence rather than intuition. In this workshop
I would like to share some of the techniques I use to do this. On the way we will have a look
at recent research on workplace communication, revisit key concepts such as genre and
community of practice, look at techniques for gathering evidence, and work with the
practicalities of converting that evidence into teaching materials.
