Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) August 28, 2014
TESOL International Association (TESOL), the premier association for English language educators worldwide, and Oxford University Press announce a new partnership. Focused on grammar education for English learners, the partnership will highlight grammar resources and professional development opportunities for English language educators from both TESOL and Oxford.
A highlight of the partnership is the development of four virtual seminars that will include content from Oxford’s new Elements of Success series, as well as experts and authors from TESOL and Oxford. TESOL will launch the seminars at the end of 2014, and they will be available to all TESOL members and Oxford customers. And Oxford will continue their longtime participation in TESOL’s annual international convention held each March.
In addition, Oxford will be the exclusive sponsor for TESOL’s two popular grammar courses. Grammar 1 is offered in February, and Grammar 1 and 2 are both offered in July. Anyone can participate. Oxford will also provide grammar resources for the TESOL Resource Center, which is available on the TESOL website.
“English language teachers will directly benefit from this high level collaboration by accessing, on their own time, high quality content on a topic of perennial importance in English language teaching and learning,” said Rosa Aronson, TESOL executive director.
“We believe that education changes lives for the better and are committed to making a difference in people’s lives through education and learning English. At Oxford University Press we strive to work closely with teachers, academics, and professional organizations such as TESOL to create the best learning and teaching environment,” said Laura Pearson, director, English language teaching, NY, at Oxford University Press.
