Meeting Description:

International Conference, Beyond English: Multilingualism in Contemporary Europe
Polonia University, Częstochowa, Poland
May 14, 2014

The conference focuses on multilingualism in contemporary Europe and the role of English as the global language. However, its aim is to show that, even though English is the world language, learners should not limit themselves to it because multilingualism is also present in many contexts.

The conference fee is 300 zlotys for Polish participants and 100 euros for foreign ones.
