My wife and I have a whole load of individual text books for EFL, EAP, business English, ESP, you name it. As our careers have evolved, we have little use for the majority of them, and now they are taking up space that we need for other books, etc. I’m sure this is familiar to many of you. I would say we have around 60 books that we no longer need, all in good or brand-new condition. As a result, I spent some time today searching online to see if any organisations recycle such things to developing countries, for example. To be honest, I found nothing that clearly told me they could handle such things.
So, does anybody out there know of any way of productively giving these books another use? I would be grateful to hear on firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
Would you like to learn more about one of the most exciting areas in language teaching? Why not visit our Courses page where we have just launched a new lesson on Augmented Reality. The lesson is currently free and we are happy to receive feedback. It will take about an hour, and involves making an AR aura for your students with the app HP Reveal. Enjoy!
HUGE thanks to Wayne Trotman, reviewer extraordinaire’ for his recent review just published in the EL Gazette
Wayne Trotman reviews a book outlining a sensible approach to blended or ‘flipped’ learning
“Implementing a BL course requires a framework and a platform, and the two chapters covering this area are perhaps the most enlightening in the whole book.”
“The authors have done superbly well to reduce what might appear to be a complicated area to one that even IT dunderheads such as myself could appreciate with ease.”

Learning about a lot of useful resources for my teaching… Great! – Piedad
Apart of new interesting concepts connected with pedagogy I’ve been learning some new English vocabulary in this course as well. For example, a ‘laggard’ – a person who adopts a new technology as the last one:) – Sarka
Unique ambience, wonderful people and many inspiring ideas! 🙂 It is a great and rewarding experience! 🙂 – ANGELIKA
