fields to present their work, receive feedback, and network. The TALGS
Conference provides graduate students as well as TESOL and other Foreign

German, DLI, etc.) a forum to showcase their research and successful teaching
practices. TALGS is committed to bettering the educational experiences of
language learners in the community by providing a comfortable environment where
an interaction between theory/research and practice/teaching is possible.

Keynote Speaker:
Dr. Ofelia GarcĂ­a,
Professor of Urban Education, The City
University of New York

Call for Papers

Research Meets Practice & Practice Meets Research: We encourage submissions from
graduate students and professionals whose research and practice fall broadly
under the umbrella of applied linguistics and TESL/TEFL. We welcome proposals
relevant to language use, learning, and/or teaching. Sample fields include
applied linguistics & education (e.g., teaching ESL/EFL, English language
learners in mainstream classrooms, immersion/dual language programs, or
content-based teaching models), foreign language education, English studies,
discourse & sociolinguistics. Presentations on action research (inside and
outside the classroom), reports on successful teaching practices, works in
progress, as well as proposals for discussion sessions and workshops will be
considered. Presentations requiring computer facilities can be accommodated.
Multiple proposals will be considered.
