FELT - History, Application Form & Newsletters

FELT was created in Dublin, in December 1998 to provide a Forum for English Language Teachers in Ireland. The old EFL teachers' organisation in Ireland died a horrible death. Painful to watch... Those of us who still cared got together and recreated a new teachers' organisation to provide networking opportunities and practical support for EFL/ESL teachers and teacher trainers in Ireland - North and South. FELT Ireland became an Associate Member of IATEFL in January 2000.

The association thrived for a few years but eventually it began to die off as all of the work was being done by fewer and fewer people. The end came when the last person turned off the lights. However, he left the website up, so that people can continue to access the old newsletters. Below are previous copies of the FELT Newsletter in PDF format for those who are interested. To read these PDF files you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader Version 4.0 or later.
