Welcome to the Society of Pakistan English Language Teachers

SPELT Workshops

The Society of Pakistan English Language Teachers (SPELT) is a registered, non-political, non-government (NGO), voluntary body of English Language teachers from schools, colleges and universities. Formed in 1984, in Karachi, it is dedicated to improving the standard of English teaching and learning in Pakistan. SPELT operates on the principle of team work and self-help to enable maximum exploitation of the limited resources available in the country. As a body it attempts to be well informed about recent developments in teaching techniques, which invariably need to be modified in order to suit the needs and limitations of the Pakistani situation. It is affiliated with a number of international organizations like TESOL (USA), IATEFL (UK), RELC (Singapore), TESOL (Greece)

Message from affiliates

On behalf of TESOL International Association I am sending a message of solidarity to our Affiliate, SPELT and all teachers in Pakistan. Teaching breaks down the barriers of ignorance, teaching nurtures critical thinking skills, which can be used effectively to question assumptions and biases. Teaching promotes tolerance for other points of view, teaching promotes peace and conflict resolution without violence. Our statement on the massacre of Peshawar has been posted on our website

~ Rosa Aronson, Ph.D., CAE Executive Director TESOL International Association

     TESOL truly appreciates SPELT leadership team for its continuing efforts in promoting English language teaching and learning in your region and at the global level.

~ Carol Read, IATEFL President
