TESOL Arabia is a not-for-profit teachers’ membership organisation devoted to the professional development of its members, who are mostly based in the UAE and the Gulf region, though we have many members in other countries around the world. It is run by volunteers elected from its membership and is financed by the subscriptions of its members and the proceeds of its Annual International Conference & Exhibition. Our next conference (TACON 2018) will take place 8th – 10th March 2018 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

the growth of professional development through the encouragement of both practical and theoretical scholarship

Encourage 

the use of available technologies

Adopt 

the instructional methodologies that best meet the needs of our students

Promote 

the English language teaching profession as a career

Provide 

a forum for discussion and support
