WELCOME TO THE ORG
Welcome to our website! The ELT Online Reading Group is an electronic version of a face-to-face reading group. Join us to read one of the selected short stories, poems and/or book extracts and then post your comments on them. New texts are added every month.
The Group was created in 2007 to encourage ELT professionals and TESOL students to read literature in English, as well as promote professional development and intercultural competence through the discussion of works literature.
About the Project
Over the past few years the popularity of Reading Groups has dramatically increased in the UK and around the world, becoming places to develop friendships, cultivate dialogue and the sharing of ideas prompted by the reading of literature.
The Group was created having in mind those English language professionals who work in special conditions, especially teachers who have little access to libraries and books in English, limited internet access and/or little time to search the Web for reading material.
We also had in mind those teachers who work in remote areas or conflict zones where it is almost impossible to guarantee safety and the right to public gatherings and/or who count on little support to start a Reading Group in their workplaces or communities.
