Join us in the heart of Montgomery, Alabama, for AMTESOL 2025! This year, we are embracing the theme "Celebrating Cultural and Linguistic Kaleidoscopes," a tribute to the vibrant cultural and linguistic diversity found in teaching English to speakers of other languages. We invite you to bring innovative ideas, ground-breaking methods, and insightful perspectives that resonate with this theme. The AMTESOL Conference is a prime platform for you to showcase transformative approaches that can enhance teaching, research, collaboration, and advocacy for English learners in our region. Do not miss this chance to engage in a dynamic educational exchange and leave a lasting impact on our diverse educational landscape. Be inspired, share your knowledge, and connect with fellow educators!


As you prepare your proposal, we encourage you to consider the following questions:

  • What ideas have you implemented that transformed classroom instruction and atmosphere for your students?

  • What challenges have you identified and addressed?

  • In what ways have you engaged with parents or the community to impact English Learners?

  • What new research have you explored or conducted that will change the future of English Learner Instruction?

Types of presentations:

  • 45-minute presentations

  • 20-minute presentations

  • posters

Key Information for Submitters

In-person conference: Please note that AMTESOL 2025 is an IN-PERSON conference, so virtual or pre-recorded video presentations will not be accepted.


Conference registration: All presenters of an accepted presentation must register for the conference before Early Bird Registration ends. AMTESOL thanks all presenters for their participation but presenters do pay full price for their Early Bird Registration. AMTESOL keeps its conference fees as low as possible.

Non-U.S. presenters: If you live outside of the USA and require a visa, please note that AMTESOL is NOT a visa-issuing entity. In our experience, the US government does not typically issue visas for small, regional conferences such as AMTESOL. Also, the timeframe from acceptance until the conference is typically too tight to receive a visa.
