Meeting Description:

The 31st International Conference on English Teaching and Learning is to be hosted by Chung Yuan Christian University on May 17-18, 2014. Enthusiastic discussions among researchers from non-English-speaking countries have broadened the horizon of English teaching and learning. Other disciplines, such as Translation, Interpretation, Literature, and Cultural Studies, also play essential roles in English education. Such development suggests that English education is no longer limited within a certain field; knowledge from different disciplines cultivates diversity in English education. Recognizing this trend, the ICETL_ROC Organizing Committee aims to provide a platform for researchers from various fields to exchange ideas on issues related to the empowerment of English education and cross-cultural communication.

The 31st ICETL_ROC conference will focus on the following issues: English Education in Linguistic Studies, English Teaching in the Era of World Englishes, Translation and English Education, and English Learning in Cross-cultural Communication and Literature Studies. Topics of interest include:

1. World Englishes
2. Cross-cultural communication and language teaching
3. Communication skills and strategies
4. Sociocultural factors in EFL learning
5. Bilingual education
6. Cross-linguistic influence
7. Integrative curriculum and instruction
8. Technology-enhanced language learning
9. Language assessment
10. ESP (English for Specific Purposes)/EAP (English for Academic Purposes)
