Venezuela Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages




Executive Board 2015-2016


VenTESOL's Mission

VenTESOL's mission is to develop expertise in English teaching and learning in Venezuela.


Its main objectives are to:

* Promote ELT issues.

*Strengthen English language teaching and learning at all educational levels in Venezuela.

*Promote and spread research in the ELT field.

* Work collaboratively with other teacher organizations with the same interests.


VenTESOL exists thanks to volunteer work done by its members who are actively involved and committed to its mission. Such voluntarism is not easy as most members are full-time teachers, sometimes holding two or more jobs.


As part of VenTESOL's professional development program, we organize events all over the country which is divided into seven different regions. Our annual national convention is a verysuccessful event and it takes place in May. It's the biggest event for the year. The annual VenTESOL National Convention brings together over 700 professionals.


We currently have eight Board Members whom you can consult and contact for any additional information, they'll be more than glad to answer all your questions.
