Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Language Acquisition

Meeting Description:

Welcome to the I International Conference on Applied Linguistics to Language Teaching: Towards Multilingualism, an opportunity for researchers and teachers, both experts and novices, to share the results of studies and didactic experiences.

Developing a multilingual competence of citizens is a lifelong learning task, integrating the efforts of the educational system, the scientific community, the experts in language learning and its teaching, the certifying institutions, as well as the personal motivation and effort of each individual. The interdisciplinary nature of applied linguistics can address the multiple challenges of multilingualism.

The languages present in the Conference are English, French, German and Spanish, with a panel specific for each of them, composed of the following sections: oral presentations, workshops, posters and junior research projects.

Representatives of the four linguistic communities, invited to two round tables, will discuss about the challenges of multilingual society and the professional projection of applied linguistics in foreign language teaching.

The programme will be completed with four Master Lectures, given by international experts in the field, who will be discussing the most relevant and current issues in language acquisition, foreign language learning and its teaching.

The papers presented at the Conference will be published in the ‘Revista Nebrija de Lingüística Aplicada’.

Bienvenidos al I Congreso Internacional Nebrija en Lingüística Aplicada a la Enseñanza de Lenguas, un punto de encuentro donde los investigadores y profesores, tanto expertos como noveles, pueden compartir los resultados de sus estudios y experiencias didácticas.

El desarrollo de la competencia plurilingüe de los ciudadanos es una tarea para toda la vida, que integra los esfuerzos del sistema educativo, de la sociedad del conocimiento, de los expertos en aprendizaje de lenguas y en su enseñanza, de las instituciones certificadoras, así como la motivación y el esfuerzo de cada individuo. El carácter interdisciplinar de la Lingüística aplicada puede dar respuesta a los múltiples desafíos que plantea el plurilingüismo.

Las lenguas presentes en el Congreso son alemán, español, francés e inglés, con un panel específico para cada una de ellas, constituido por las siguientes secciones: comunicaciones, talleres, pósters e investigadores noveles.

Diversos representantes de las cuatro comunidades idiomáticas debatirán en dos Mesas redondas sobre los retos de la sociedad plurilingüe y sobre la proyección profesional de la lingüística aplicada a la enseñanza de lenguas extranjeras.

El programa se completa con cuatro Lecciones magistrales, impartidas por expertos de referencia en el ámbito internacional, sobre los aspectos más actuales de la adquisición, la enseñanza y el aprendizaje de las lenguas extranjeras.

Las actas del Congreso se publicarán en la Revista Nebrija de Lingüística Aplicada.
