MISSION OF THE ASSOCIATION  is to strengthen the teaching and learning of English in the Russian Far East, to promote the professional development of EFL teachers, to support networking with colleagues all over the world, and to give access to the latest EFL resources.

FEELTA headquarters is in the Institute of Foreign Languages, Far Eastern National University, Vladivostok.

Today FEELTA is an organization of 500 members. There are currently 7 FEELTA posts in the Russian Far East: in Blagoveshchensk, Birobijan, Khabarovsk, Komsomolsk, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Ussuriysk, and Vladivostok (FEELTA headquarters). These posts provide ELT professionals with information and support within their geographical areas.

 

FEELTA’s PREMIER EVENT is the international conference, which is held every other year and attracts some 500 participants. It is a major event and EFL practitioners from even the remotest parts of the Russian Far East come to network and expand their knowledge. The location of the conference alternates between Vladivistok and one of the other FEELTA posts.

Among other FEELTA activities are an annual English Language “Talent Show” for secondary school students, a Winter EFL Methodology School offering a number of workshops and seminars on new trends in language and culture teaching, and publishers’ seminars to give teachers knowledge of the latest textbooks and other teaching resources.

FEELTA is eager to expand its connections with overseas colleagues by forming partnerships with international professional organizations. In 2001, FEELTA became the 5th member of the Pan-Asian Consortium (PAC), an alliance of language teaching associations in East Asia. FEELTA has partnership agreements with each of the PAC member associations: KOTESOL (Korea TESOL), JALT (the Japan Association for Language Teaching), ThaiTESOL (Thailand), ETA-ROC (English Teachers’ Association – Republic of China) and with PALT (the Philippine Association for Language Teaching). The agreements allow us:

· to exchange newsletters and journals

· to invite an official representative to each others’ annual conference

· to explore the possibility of joint activities such as exchanging speakers, advertising job announcements, extending invitations to attend business meetings and special debates, and planning a joint Asian conference

· to publish membership announcements in each others’ newsletters

Since 1999, FEELTA has been an associate of IATEFL (the International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language).


We encourage EFL professionals to join the Far Eastern English Language Teachers’ Association and to use their membership to the fullest so that FEELTA can be a powerful partner in your success.
