Meeting Description:

LIA is celebrating its 50 years of teaching English amidst considerations that are being raised in the current context of English language teaching. LIA started out with Audio-Lingual teaching practices, which, at that time, seemed to be the most common approach. In the process, as new methods and practices came about, LIA has explored and adopted new teaching practices to optimize language learning.

Today, English has become the language for communication spoken by native and non-native speakers worldwide. The tremendous demands for the use of English in the 21st century have forced language teaching experts and professionals to look into other concerns besides language teaching and learning alone but language teaching and learning in different settings, cultures, and linguistic backgrounds. The profession of English language teaching today has to examine the pros and cons that deal with considerations of World English or World Englishes, English as an International Language, and acceptable standards that should be applied.

To keep abreast with what language teaching experts are concerned with, LIA International Conference 2010 hopes to provide a platform for language teaching experts and professionals to bring in and share new insights, current considerations and problems that impact on language teaching and learning in all of its aspects: linguistic, social, and cultural. LIA hopes that with this kind of dialog, the conference will bring about a better understanding and greater tolerance and acceptance of the differences in communication among world cultures.

The conference will be held for two and half consecutive days. Plenary and split plenary sessions will be conducted each day prior to or followed by concurrent sessions.

Highlights of LIA International Conference include:

- Culture Class is a concurrent session in the form of cultural sessions from participating countries (represented by participants) taking place outdoors in the gardens of the hotel’s vast landscape.
- Conference World Festival, a dinner party by the beach, highlighted by unique Balinese Gong musical performance as well as world cultural performance from representatives of participating regions in Indonesia and other countries
