Meeting Description: The 6th N.E.A.R. Language Education Conference will be held on Saturday, 24 May 2014, in Niigata, Japan.

The theme of the conference will be Language Learning in the 21st Century: Approaches, Needs and Contexts. Presenters will be invited to explore original ideas, novel approaches and fresh perspectives.

This unique, growing conference is seeking to build a community by bringing together language teachers and researchers working in the languages of the North East Asia Region (Chinese, English, Korean, Japanese and Russian).

The conference is organized by the Niigata Chapter of JALT, the University of Niigata Prefecture, and the International University of Japan.

Considering Niigata's position on the Japan Sea Coast and our strong connections to the other countries around the Japan Sea Rim, the conference focuses on language learning in the North East Asia Region (N.E.A.R.). It provides an excellent opportunity to share ideas with a diverse group of colleagues.
