|Meeting Description:||The strong comparative tradition of South African Dutch studies comes to the fore in the theme of 2014.
The focus of this conference is the Dutch language and how it relates to other languages, cultures, disciplines, new media and tuition. One of the main aims is the teaching of Dutch as a foreign language (Nederlands als Vreemde Taal), but since the conference theme is 'Dutch in conversation with...', delegates are welcome to deliver a paper on any topic concerning Dutch and a combined interest.

The conference fee, also payable in South African Rand, will cost ZAR 1500. The congress fee will include teas and meals during the conference as well as the gala dinner.
