     Participants are encouraged to submit proposals that are related to the conference theme:


    Past, Present and Future of TESOL




    Our theme of the 2018 conference is "Past, Present and Future of TESOL" which lends itself to discussions about the progression of TESOL through the years (especially in Hawaii).

His other areas of expertise are in L2 listening and speaking, L2 materials development and L2 teacher development.
