TESL - Spain

TESOL-Spain is an independent, philanthropic and non-profit association of English-language teachers. It is the only nation-wide organization of teachers in Spain to represent every single sector in English teaching. It provides a forum where, for example, university professors, primary school teachers, private language school teachers and teachers from the Escuela Oficial de Idiomas, etc. can meet.

The people who work within TESOL-Spain do so on a strictly volunteer basis without receiving any payment for their efforts, their reward being the knowledge of having helped to improve the teaching of languages in Spain.

TESOL-Spain organizes lectures, regional congresses and an annual national convention featuring over a hundred papers, workshops and presentations by speakers from Spain and other countries as well as plays and other social events. It also issues a publication called TESOL-Spain Newsletter four times a year

Spanish Teachers of English on Internet

The Internet provides the most efficient way for EFL/ESL teachers to connect with each other. It is often impossible to find someone near one's work who shares an interest in particular aspects of the job. English Teachers in Spain can now take advantage of the connections that others in the country are building in the spirit of dialogue, sharing, growing, and support. This page is one example of that building relationships that needs to be encouraged and supported if EFL/ESL teachers are to feel part of the world-wide community of English language teaching.
