As We Speak Newsletter


The goal of As We Speak is to provide articles that promote the exchange of information and ideas on instructional techniques, research findings, publications, and other areas related to speech, pronunciation, and listening. The newsletter also serves as an informational forum for our membership about the ongoing business of the interest section, including IS-related election issues, and upcoming TESOL and affiliate conference news.
