Mission Statement

We wish to contribute to the enhancement of educational effectiveness as measured by student achievement, in terms of practical language skills and life enrichment. We want to keep our activities closely linked to practitioners in the classroom, (inter)national developments in the field of English education and to expert organisations. We recognize both the value of experience and the importance of innovation. We are a non-profit organization, run by volunteers and work as ‘teachers for teachers’.
