Have you ever wondered what TESOL affiliates are doing to enhance ELT in their regions around the world? If so, Philadelphia is the place to answer that question!
Did you know there are more than 100 teachers’ organizations all over the world which are TESOL affiliates and they gather around 50.000 members worldwide?
According to the TESOL website
affiliates are independent, autonomous associations affiliated with TESOL INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION and each other as members of the TESOL community. TESOL affiliates offer English language educators professional information and support within their geographic regions. These affiliates have the opportunity to improve language teaching by fostering the exchange of ideas, resources, information, newsletters, and reflective experiences through online discussions, partnerships, conferences, and workshops.
During the upcoming TESOL convention in the beautiful city of Philadelphia, teachers’ organizations from all over the world will be able to share their experiences at the Affiliate Booth, which will be located near the registration area. For 1 hour, each affiliate will have the opportunity to interact with other members, answer questions, and share ideas and expertise in the organization of successful events in their areas. The schedule is below.
