New Year, New Opportunities to Grow!

In addition to continuing our mission to publish the highest quality, most engaging, and students-and-teacher-friendliest materials available to world language teachers, we have a new resolution this year! Our resolution is to be a 24-7 teacher support and professional growth system for all of you! We hope you will find one or all of these options appealing, as you GROW your way through 2019!

Fluency Matters’ Live Webinars

It is not too late to join our live webinar series Reading: Before, During, and After and there are just a handful of spots open in our cohort! You’ve only missed one thus far, AND you can even go watch a recording of the first meeting! Cohort members attend additional follow-up personalized webinar sessions to debrief on their week of teaching and implementation of their new strategies! If you miss a webinar, you have tons of time to catch up and watch the recording of the original webinar. Join Carol Gaab, Kristy Placido, and Carrie Toth and learn everything you need to know to successfully implement an amazing reading program in your classroom!

The iFLT Conference

The iFLT Conference has sold out well in advance five years in a row! There is a reason why iFLT is considered the premiere conference for teachers who want to be trained by the best in the business. Our trainers are real teachers with real classroom success. You will not believe the surprises we have in store for you in 2019. And a tropical beach location allows you to extend your professional learning into the evenings with your new friends in a relaxed vacation-like setting! Don’t be filled with regret! Sign up now while space is still available!
