Welcome  To ORTESOL!

ORTESOL is an affiliate of TESOL and was founded in 1977. We serve teachers, administrators, researchers, and students of the ESL profession in the state of Oregon. 

Our Mission Statement

ORTESOL is a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to promote scholarship, disseminate information, strengthen instruction and research at all levels in the teaching of English to speakers of other languages, and to cooperate in appropriate ways with other groups having similar concerns.

Important Opportunity to Advocate!

ORTESOL encourages all members to issue a comment on the changes to the Public Charge rules being proposed by the Department of Homeland Security. The proposed changes may make it difficult for both immigrants and international students who are here legally to remain in the US if they have ever accessed public benefits or are judged as likely to access benefits in the future. These changes could have a devastating effect on the lives of millions of people who contribute to our nation's economy and may seriously undermine their ability to change their visa status, seek education, or engage in job skills training.

Please click on the "Comment Now" button of the webpage linked here by December 10th.

Learn more about the proposed changes with the following resources:
