• The new NILE ELT Glossary is a free resource for English language teachers and trainers providing in-depth definitions and explanations of ELT-specific terminology.

    Try out the ELT Glossary here

    We have created this resource to support course participants on all NILE Online courses, including Delta and Master's programmes.

    Terms have been selected by course designers and as well as definitions and examples, each term is accompanied by suggestions for further reading around the topic.

    Definitions were written by Mary Spratt and co-edited by Alan Pulverness and Thom Kiddle.

    We are pleased to be able to make this resource available to course participants and non-participants alike and we hope you will find it useful.
