What Happened to the Tea?

CoffeeYes, TESOL usually offers tea with distinguished TESOLers, but when you're gathering in Starbucks' hometown, you drink coffee, right? Of course, if you'd rather have tea, that will be available, too.

Renew your energy with a Cup o' Joe and a light snack while you and a small group of colleagues discuss a current topic of interest with a leading TESOL expert.

Each topic is limited to nine participants. Don't miss this opportunity to talk to a leading TESOLer about critical issues in ELT. The coffees sell out quickly, so register early!

The Coffee Talks are sponsored by:
