Multidisciplinary Approaches to Multilingualism

Modern processes of integration, mobility, different means of communication
and foreign language learning have made multilingualism a key feature of
today's world. The topic of multilingualism has been chosen for the 28th
CALS conference focus due to its current and comprehensive character. The
intention is to gather applied linguists with the purpose of discussing
multilingualism (as well as bilingualism) as a psycholinguistic,
sociolinguistic and glotodidactic phenomenon.

The official languages of the conference are Croatian, English and German.

Keynote speakers:

Henriëtte Hendriks (University of Cambridge, Great Britain)
August Kovačec (University of Zagreb, Croatia)

This year's conference will host a round table entitled: Learners with
Special Needs and Second / Foreign Language Learning.

(Hearing and visual impairments, dysleksia/dysgraphia, and ADHD)

Teaching special needs students requires a multidisciplinary approach. This
is due to a variety of specific characteristics pertaining to their
cognitive and affective profiles as well as specific potential which is
commonly developed in individuals with atypical abilities.

The aim of this round table is to initiate discussion on various issues and
concerns related to second / foreign language learning in students with
special needs - from theoretical questions and research methodology to
everyday classroom challenges.
