    Hi TESOL Community,

    If you are interested in the very unique world of Aviation English assessment, please join us this Friday, January 27, 2023 at 8:00 AM EST (13:00 UTC) for a free webinar from the International Civil Aviation English Association's (ICAEA) President, Michael Kay. This webinar is a collaboration between the English for Specific Purposes (ESP) and Applied Linguistics (AL) Interest Sections of TESOL.
