Recently, TESOL Spain has issued a position statement against discrimination in ELT, opposing job ads that require the candidate to be a 'native speaker', have 'native-like' fluency, or speak with 'standard' English. I had a chance to talk to the current president of TESOL Spain, Annie Altamirano, to find out a bit more about the statement and why it was issued. We also had a chat about how TESOL Spain is planning to put the statement into practice, promoting equality in Spanish ELT and supporting both their 'native' and 'non-native speaker' members. We finished off by talking about ELT in Spain and what still needs to be done so that teachers are recruited and valued based on their skills, rather than their first language.
