Jeju Chapter -- March 2015 Workshop Review

We all know that the internet is a major resource for information (and other things) on just about anything one can think of.  With my Facebook feed continually updating with news and entertainment from around the world, it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle of all that’s out there.  This is also true for the resources available to teachers, new and old.

KOTESOL Membership Dues to Rise - Renew Early and Save!

KOTESOL membership dues rates will change July 1, 2015.

The KOTESOL membership dues rates have not changed since 1998, while other costs in Korea have climbed 30-60%--or more.*

This means the costs of operations, such as producing publications, hosting chapter meetings, and organizing events, have climbed while membership dues support has not kept pace.
