Special interests

Not all English language teaching professionals are the same!

We all have different roles and different areas of professional interest. As a member of IATEFL you can create the perfect membership for yourself by choosing to join one or more of our 16 Special Interest Groups (SIGs). Our SIGs each focus on a different area of English language teaching, and provide the chance for members to share knowledge and best practice.

Each Special Interest Group provides a range of benefits for its members. These can include: dedicated forums and newsletters, webinars and web conferences, podcasts, discounts on courses, and a busy programme of teacher training events and workshops organised around the world each year.

SIG membership:

  • Cost for individual members: £23
  • Cost for institutional members: £33

Our 16 Special Interest Groups are offering freely available resources to the ELT community. Find out more here.
