We live in an age of intensive civilizational changes. Increasing mobility and international contacts, enhanced by the use of new media and new technologies change the scene and context of teaching and learning of foreign languages and cultures. The new media and information technologies, online translators, and social networks contribute to changes in educational standards. Learners and teachers are part of these changes and shape new educational context in the contemporary world.

The meeting will offer a forum for international and interdisciplinary exchanges among academic scholars and foreign language teachers to discuss new developments in the field of language and culture education.

Prof. dr hab. Kamila Turewicz, University of Humanities and Economics in Łodz
