The 7th International Language Conference on the Importance of Learning Professional Foreign Languages for Communication between Cultures will take place at the University of Maribor, the Faculty of Economics and Business in Maribor from 11-12 September 2014.

Practitioners, researchers and postgraduate students interested in joining the discussion on current and emerging trends in foreign language teaching and learning are welcome to submit proposals for papers or workshops or join the conference as a listener.
