Building bridges – Building communities
For many years, TESOL-SPAIN has been working closely with a handful of Teacher Associations such as IATEFL and TESOL and local associations. However, in recent times, our network has extended beyond the Spanish borders to include sister associations in faraway places like ARTESOL or Korea TESOL. This has made it possible to learn about what other teachers are doing in other countries and to share problems and objectives. In this brief presentation, I would like to explain what TESOL-SPAIN has been doing, the benefits this liaison has brought to us and our plans for the future.
