TESOL 2020 - Where the world comes together!

TESOL - Where the World Comes Together!


TESOL International Association (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) is the largest professional organization for teachers of English as a second or foreign language. It was founded in 1966, and is based in Alexandria, Virginia, in the United States. Every year, TESOL organizes conferences in different cities of the United States.


Seven active members of the Association of Teachers of English North Kazakhstan (ATENK) participated in the English language teaching community’s first-ever TESOL 2020 Virtual Convention & English Language Expo, during July 16-18. The participating ATENK members were: Tamara Chereshko, Maira Kakimova, Valentina Chernykh, Dina Alibekova, Alexandra Ilina, Tatyana Arendarenko and Albina Kassenova.


Participants eagerly shared their TESOL Virtual Convention experiences through their social media and local communities.
The TESOL Convention offered 3 days of professional development opportunities to English language educators at all levels from around the world. With more than 6,000 attendees our teachers were able to:
- Grow their professional ELT network
- Learn from engaging keynote
- Gather research, strategies, and best practices from approximately 100 sessions
- Visit Virtual Expo for information on the latest ELT products and services.


Participation in the TESOL 2020 Virtual Convention is a huge experience for helping to organize ATENK’s first online regional conference “Bridging the gap: Think globally, act locally”, to be held later on in October of 2020.


ATENK expresses a huge thank you to the National Alumni Network, Regional English Language Office in Central Asia and the US Embassy to Kazakhstan for providing this opportunity to the English teachers of North Kazakhstan.
