History of the TESL Reporter

The TESL Reporter was “born” back in 1967 in a conversation between William Conway and Alice Pack, two faculty members of Brigham Young University-Hawaii. At the time, the university was about to launch both an ESL program for matriculated international students and an undergraduate (B.A.) major in TESOL (perhaps the first of its kind in North America). The creation of a publication that would serve the purposes of the faculty in these two programs and in similar endeavors in the Pacific seemed like the natural thing to do. After all, there were only two other journals which served the field of ESL back then: The TESOL Quarterly (started the year before) and the older, English Language Teaching Journal out of England.

The TESL Reporter has remained in print ever since, and has remained a journal for teachers by teachers, with a solid focus on the classroom.

Today the TESL Reporter has readers in nearly 110 countries. Our international review board is proud of its commitment to publish the ideas of teachers from around the world. We encourage you to become a part of that effort!

Sincerely,

Nancy Tarawhiti, Editor nancy.tarawhiti@byuh.edu
