Meeting Description: Topics in Applied Linguistics: Communication in the New Media Age
Venue: Opole University, Opole, Poland
Date: November 12-14, 2012

The 3rd International TAL Conference will have communication as its focus. The choice of the topic has been motivated by the changing landscape of communication options. Due to the development of information technologies our communication has become quick and global, transcending time and space constraints. The questions that we would like to address during the Conference concern the impact of the new media on second language acquisition and foreign language learning and teaching, bilingualism and multilingualism, contrastive linguistics, language assessment, literacies, discourse analysis, language pedagogy, lexicography, language planning and policies, pragmatics, forensic linguistics, and translation.

Piotr Cap (University of Łódź, Poland)

Aneta Pavlenko (Temple University, U.S.A.)

Janusz Arabski (University of Silesia, Poland)
