The Asian Conference on Language Learning
10 to 12 June 2011
Organized by the International Academic Forum and its Global Partners
International Academic Conference on Language Learning and related fields of study.
Conference Theme: Connecting Theory and Practice
Conference Chair: Professor Steve Cornwell, Osaka
Learning a language is something all of us have done with many having learned a second, third, or even fourth language; however, achieving proficiency in a foreign language is not something that can be taken for granted. Instead it is a challenge, and one that language educators are constantly grappling with, as we work to improve our craft and to help our students learn more effectively.
As language professionals, we are scholars and practitioners, and yet as educators we know that integrating the latest in theory to compliment what we do in practice can be a struggle. However the rewards for both the teacher and the student are very high and we are lucky within the field of language learning to have strong outlets where we can learn from each other.
The aim of this International Conference is to encourage academics, scholars and practitioners representing an exciting diversity of countries, cultures, and religions to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum encouraging respectful dialogue. By bringing together a number of university scholars working throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas, ACCL 2011 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.
