Conference Theme:

Since language instruction without a distinctively targeted content seems as untenable as squaring of the circle, the conference expresses a firm belief in the golden means philosophy that may facilitate keeping balance between fostering communication skills and developing human capitals in various branches of economy. Hence, the conference has been designed as a forum of interdisciplinary academic dialogue on CLIL methodologies as well as purely practical consequences of implementing CLIL pedagogies in institutional educational practices, human resources management, labour market modelling, and multilateral political cooperation.
