We have reinstated membership fees. Kindly visit our Membership page for the current rates.
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 such an extent that the Association has become representative of a large number of people involved in language and language teaching.
We serve language teachers 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.
