TasTESOL is Tasmania’s professional association for Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages.

TasTESOL provides professional development and networking opportunities throughout the year, including:

  • A state-wide conference held in Hobart (usually in April or May)
  • Forums and workshops with guest speakers

Forums in Hobart are usually held on Thursday evenings, 5pm – 7pm, three times a year. There is usually an all-day forum held in Launceston on a Saturday, 10am – 2:30pm (approx.) in the second half of the year.
