- Jennifer Wallace posted (on TEFLCHINALife) aboutthe benefits of IATEFL
membership. I join when I want to do a conference and I'm afraid I let
things lapse between whiles. But the conferences are good and I've
learned a lot there.
I have also joined TESOL for the THAITESOL conference. I don't know
about other benefits but the THAITESOL conference is perhaps the best
of the TESOL conferences in this part of the world. Again there are
usually some big names and fertile minds plus plenty of classroom
MELTA, in Malaysia used to do good conferences but I've not been
impressed of late.
- Dick Tibbetts muses about some English language
teaching organizations. I was briefly on the board of
KOTESOL (Korean TESOL) which still does a great job,
and we must not ignore FEELTA (Far Eastern English
Language Teaching Association) which organizes great
conferences. The one two years ago in Vladivostok
featured two great speakers, Krashen and me.
