ETJ News - Language Teaching Professionals
March 2013Online Book Store
I am starting a 'Language Teaching Professionals' ETJ Book Service. This is an online bookstore for members of ETJ (English Teachers in Japan). Members will be able to order any English language text or resource book that is published internationally and available in Japan. There will be a 20% discount and free postage on orders over 10,000 yen.
I am doing this for two reasons. One reason is to strengthen ETJ and give a clear benefit to members. The David English House Book Service played a key role in the building up of ETJ, and I think this new book service can do the same. The other reason is more personal. My health for age-related reasons has not been so good recently, and it is very difficult for me to rush around teaching so much. Running this book service from home will be a way I can both support my family and pay for initiatives to support the professional development of teachers. In effect, I will be running it like a cottage industry.
At first, all orders will be made by
e-mail to me. It will just be necessary to send me an e-mail with the names and quantities of books you need.I will acknowledge and confirm each order. After a few months, there will be a sophisticated website
