TIRF, The International Research Foundation for English Language Education (TIRF) is a non-profit organization whose goal is to generate new knowledge about English language teaching and learning.
It aims:
*       To promote the application of research to practical language problems
*       To collect, organize, and disseminate information and research on the teaching and learning of language
*       To influence the formation and implementation of appropriate language education policies, taking cognizance of the complementarity of English as an international language and indigenous languages and cultures worldwide

TIRF is committed to the development of a research agenda that is flexible and dynamic, both addressing perennial issues and evolving as critical questions present themselves. The foundation's current focus is on promoting research and best practices that will improve the use of English in the emerging global knowledge economy of the 21st century.
