The South African Association for Language Teaching (SAALT), a non-profit organisation (178-756 NPO), was founded in 1966 as the South African Language Study Group. Since then its membership has increased to the extent that the Association now represents a large number of language researchers and language teachers.
We serve language practitioners at all levels with information on the latest research, trends, and best practice related to the profession. The Journal for Language Teaching is our flagship product. Our annual conference provides practitioners with an opportunity for productive interaction among language teaching professionals nationally. Our networks connect local language teaching professionals with global expertise.
The Association is committed to multilingualism and emphasises this both in theory and in practice.
