Dear TIRF Colleagues and Friends,

As 2023 draws to a close, I wanted to take a moment to express my deepest appreciation for the unwavering dedication, support, and hard work the TIRF community has contributed to our work this year.

Your commitment and tireless efforts have been instrumental in shaping TIRF into an even more robust and impactful organization. The year 2023 has been nothing short of transformative for TIRF, and this would not have been possible without your invaluable input and support.

To my TIRF Board colleagues, it is through your collective vision and leaderships that TIRF has grown stronger than ever before. Your passion for the field of English language education, research, and knowledge sharing has been at the heart of every decision and initiative we have undertaken this year.

With our collective ongoing commitment and invaluable expertise, I have no doubt that TIRF will continue to thrive and inspire positive change within the global community, of English language educators and researchers.

In closing, I extend my deepest gratitude to all of you for your outstanding contributions to TIRF. As your TIRF President, I am deeply honored to work alongside such an exceptional group of individuals, and I eagerly anticipate the great strides we will achieve together in the year ahead.

May the holiday season bring you joy and fulfillment, and may the new year be filled with abundant opportunities and successes.

With warm regards,

Jun Liu, PhD

President, TIRF
