Meeting Description:

The Global Conference on Linguistics and Foreign Language Teaching (LINELT-2013) is the premier forum for the presentation of new advances and research results in the fields of Linguistics and Foreign Language Teaching. The conference aims to bring together academics, linguists, teachers, graduate and undergraduate students with government and non-government organizations to share and discuss both theoretical and practical knowledge in the area of language education, linguistic and intercultural education.

It is expected that LINELT will attract a significant number of front-ranking academics, professionals and policy makers working in the broad area of language education, linguistic and intercultural education. The main aim of the conference is to promote the values of multilingualism and intercultural cooperation in a rapidly changing and communication-driven society with cross border and culture convergent encounters. Our task is to re-examine and redefine key questions on our existing agenda, as well as to identify new collaborative and networking opportunities, both of which will inform future directions of research and development.
