The APPI Newsletter was APPI’s first publication: it started in 1986 when APPI was taking its early steps. For fifteen years it was published 3/4 times a year, until The APPI Journal came out in 2001. The Newsletter had both a formative and informative nature then.
Between 2001 and 2013 the Newsletter was published twice a year, in July and December, in alternate seasons with the publication of the Journal which had a Spring and an Autumn Issue; it was focused mostly on information about the activity of the Association and members. Updates on forthcoming or past events such as the annual conference, seminars, professional development courses provided by APPIforma; short duration workshops; reports of activities developed by the Association or institutions, groups of teachers or individual professionals were regularly present in the magazine.
However, the Newsletter always included some feature articles of interest to classroom practice, preferably shorter than those in the Journal, given the amount of pages available: 32.
Members and teachers of English at large were kindly invited to contribute to the Newsletter.
The APPI Newsletter stopped being published in 2013 due to the growing cost of its production and the lack of sponsorship. A new digital newsletter aimed at Very Young Learners’ teachers – The APPInep e-Newsletter – was launched in 2015 and has been published 4 times per year.
