TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) is the professional organization for ESL educators.
The organization has an annual international convention each spring (usually in March), publishes a journal, books and other materials for ESL educators, and provides training workshops throughout the U.S. TESOL also provides helpful information for ESL educators about the field of language learning.

In addition to the international TESOL organization, there is a Texas TESOL affiliate that holds a convention every fall.
Within the state TESOL organization, Texas has five TexTESOL organizations. The north Texas TESOL affiliate, TexTESOL V has a regional symposium in the Dallas area every fall. For more information, please go to textesolv.org.
