IATEFL book haul | Paragraph blogging

elt books

I bought a number of books from the stalls at the IATEFL exhibition in Liverpool. In fact, most of these are from Multilingual Matters who I’ve been following for some time on Twitter and it was only at the conference that I’d discovered that they had their own publishing house. As I was rearranging them in a new bookshelf, I suddenly realised how revealing they were of my current interests and potential future avenues of employment. If you’d asked me just a year ago about the sorts of books I would have picked up at a conference like IATEFL, these would’ve been very far from the titles I’d have named. You can plan and reflect all you want but you can’t always the control the direction you’re headed towards professionally. I pay lip service to the idea of iterative professional development but living it is entirely a different matter
