Dear Friends of TESOL Arabia, Sponsors, and Exhibitors
The TESOL Arabia International Conference and Exhibition is back after a year-long hiatus during which we regularized our status as a legally registered professional development and training company in the United Arab Emirates (License No CN-2642553).
Our annual conference has in the past attracted over 1700 delegates who are teachers of English at tertiary, non-tertiary, public and private institutions in the Arabian Gulf. We have participants from the greater Middle East area, as well as Asia, Europe, and North America. Normally 30-35 countries are represented. We also have over 30 exhibitors.
In our original mission statement, one of our goals was to establish a network of communication among professionals who use English as a medium of instruction in order to promote and maintain the excellence of their teaching and administration.
TESOL Arabia, therefore, still strives to:
• Stimulate the growth of professional development through the encouragement of both practical and theoretical scholarship
• Encourage the use of available technologies to enhance student learning
• Adopt the instructional methodologies that best meet the needs of our students
• Provide a forum for discussion and support for ELT professionals
