TESOL Celebrates Founders' Day

by User Not Found | 03/13/2017
On 17 March 1966, The Center for Applied Linguistics, the Modern Language Association of America, NAFSA (formerly the National Association of Foreign Student Affairs), the National Council of Teachers of English, and the National Communication Association (formerly the Speech Association of America) all came together to create what we know now as TESOL International Association.

Each year, we celebrate these founders and the birth of TESOL by offering special savings on professional development, events, publications, and membership.

With savings of up to $100, be sure to follow TESOL on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram throughout the week of 13 March to get exclusive access to these very special offers.
