Meeting Description: Current language pedagogy is more and more confronted with notions such as 'intercultural learning', 'intercultural communication' and 'multicultural society'. In spite of this growing interest, we still know little about the actual realization of what is referred to as 'sociocultural competence' within the setting of multilingual education.

The international conference 'Sociocultural Competence & Language Learning in Multilingual Settings' will bring together researchers and language teachers from across the globe interested in the role of sociocultural competence and intercultural communication in language learning and teaching. It aims to generate new insights on a range of topics, such as discussions of theoretical frameworks, methodological decisions and practical implications.
