HELTA is an active part of the English language teachers community in and around Hamburg. Our main staple are the events we organize on a variety of topics revolving around language teaching. The events are not only informative and help keep you up to date on the latest developments but also offer a great platform for networking and getting to know others in the community.

Happy 2015 to all our members and friends!

And what an excellent year it looks like it will be. We've already organised two events at the beginning of year, beginning with our AGM and Nick Munby's workshop on 30 January, then in April we welcome Dave Tucker, who will visit Hamburg from Portugal to deliver workshops for teachers of young adults. In June we hope to run our first Member's Day, giving Helta members a chance to share their ideas on a day full of training sessions.
After the summer there'll be another double feature, this time with Pete Rutherford and Rob Szabó, then finally Liz Joliffe from Frankfurt.

I wish you all an excellent start to the year and look forward to seeing you soon.
