Hawai'i TESOL 

       Welcome to Hawaii TESOL 




2014 Annual Conference

"Weaving Language and Culture"

On February 14th and 15th, the Annual Conference was held at EF Language School in Waikiki and Leeward Community College in Pearl City on the island of Oahu.

We would like to extend a warm thank you to everyone who volunteered and assisted in the organization of the conference to make it a success. We would also like to thank all of the presenters for sharing their research and ideas. In addition, we wish to thank all of the participants who supported the conference and the growth of the TESOL community here in Hawai'i. 

The theme of the conference was "Weaving Language and Culture," and the organization Hokulea, the plenary speaker for the Saturday session, gave a wonderful speech making connections from the traditional Hawaiian culture of navigation to the needs of language learners in the classroom. We would also like to thank Dr. Ken Beatty, who was the plenary speaker for the Friday session, as he gave a thought-provoking lecture on providing opportunities for reading literature in the ESL / EFL classroom.

We now look forward to seeing you all at the next event, the Spring Language Experience.
