    Hello fellow TESOLers!

    I am currently finishing my MA in English language and linguistics at the University of Westminster and I will be returning to the states in the fall to begin my MA TESOL at American University. I am looking forward to becoming involved with the community and to start teaching! I am open to any suggestions, advice or just a 'hello'!

    Hi Mason!

    TESOL is a very vibrant community and you can find different aspects of involvement.  I hope you are attending the convention in the next 3 days, where you can attend many interesting sessions, and network through the different activities TESOL has prepared!

    Welcome again and let us know if you need any help!

    Hi Mason,

    Welcome, you've come to the right place! I joined TESOL as a newer teacher around 10 years ago. Since then TESOL has been a great place to meet other like-minded professionals. I suggest you look into the different interest sections. They are a great way to connect to others in a similar teaching context or those who share the same professional passion.
    All the best,

    Hi Hamed!

    It is pleasure to meet you! I am looking forward to attending professional events such as conferences and conventions, but unfortunately I was too late to sign up for the virtual convention tomorrow, so I will have to wait until next year.
