A letter from the President

2014-12-06 19:49 | Sławomir Nowikowski

Dear Colleagues - IATEFL Poland Members,

‘Time and tide wait for no man’ and, as I am writing this, we are already approaching the end of the year, the year which, as usual, has been full of action in our SIGs and Regions, and whose highlight was the 23rd IATEFL Poland Conference, held at the University of Life Sciences in Lublin in September, and attended by almost eight hundred participants. We hope that the year to come, 2015, will bring us an equal amount, or even more exciting events nationwide, attracting hundreds of teachers and students of English who look for guidance and assistance, whilst pursuing their careers in teaching at various levels of the Polish education system. IATEFL Poland is committed to actively raising the quality of teaching English and encouraging every English teacher to achieve their full potential.
