What some of our members have said...
"Congratulations on a wonderful conference [in September 2009]. It was really fabulous to spend two full days immersed in ESL.The sessions I went to were really valuable and I enjoyed meeting many other teachers too."
"As teachers with a specific focus, we have our own issues and we need a voice. I think you've got to be in it."
"I really appreciate the [VicTESOL] newsletters"
"I really benefit from [VicTESOL]'s affiliation with ACTA because I receive updates on what is going on at the national level, two editions of TESOL in Context each year and an opportunity to attend the biannual ACTA conferences... It is fantastic to be with people who all care deeply about ESL issues."
"I want to get a sense of what's happening 'out there' and that's on a number of levels: practical classroom level, innovations and political directions."
