Welcome to the Society of Pakistan English Language Teachers

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)

Annual International Conference

    SPELT Sessions I want to serve my community. That is why I jump to every chance given to me to better myself as a teacher. At SPELT, it’s not just theory. We’ve been doing a lot of role play which has really helped me. I can’t wait till the summer is over and I can put all my new acquired skills into practice.
