What Are The 6 Principles?

The 6 Principles trademark

TESOL International Association has defined a core set of principles for the exemplary teaching of English learners. The 6 Principles® are guidelines drawn from decades of research in language pedagogy and language acquisition theory. They are targets for teaching excellence and should undergird any program of English language instruction.

The 6 Principles are for all educators who interact with English learners. Help TESOL bring high-quality English language instruction to every classroom across the globe.
