 FOURTH REGIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON APPLIED LINGUISTICS

 21-22 MAY 1999


 CALL FOR PAPERS



The M.A. Program in Applied Linguistics of the Department of Languages
of the University of the Americas /La Universidad de las Americas
invites all those interested to participate in the FOURTH REGIONAL
SYMPOSIUM ON APPLIED LINGUISTICS, with special emphasis on the
acquisition and teaching of foreign languages. The objective of the
Symposium is to provide an opportunity for academic discussion,
in-depth reflexion, and development of a richer knowledge of the
different modalities implicated in the processes of the acquisition
and teaching of a foreign language. Presentations are welcomed in
English, Spanish, French, and other languages on all topics within
the scope of Applied Linguistics.


In order to cover all dimensions of the problems related to the
acquisition and teaching of foreign languages, the Symposium organizers
propose to structure the Forum around sub-themes to guide the selection
of presentations and plenaries. Due to existence of multiple
components involved in the acquisition processs and of modern
approaches to the teaching of foreign languages, the following theme
was chosen for 1999: Socio-cultural issues.
Nevertheless, note that presentations on all topics related to Applied
Linguistics are considered as well. We welcome workshops and talks of
a more theoretical nature as well as presentations aimed at classroom
practices.
