Meeting Description:

4th Undergraduate Conference on ELT, Lingustics, and Literature 2016 is organized by English Language Education Study Program of Sanata Dharma University. This event is an undergraduate conference. We welcome abstracts and full papers from all undergraduate students.

In this globalization era, which is significant for development in every aspect of life, people are faced to the challenges in fulfilling their needs. To achieve it, they are required to communicate and make some relations with other people. As a consequence, mastering a language becomes their need to develop themselves. Therefore, language is important as the information and communication tool.

Some languages are considered as an international language in this globalization era to bring information and communication around the world. One of those international languages is English. In Indonesia, English plays an important role. Regardless of age, social status, religion, or gender, people learn English. For example, in a public area, we can easily find banners, brochures, or announcements written in English.

Having observed the importance of English in Indonesia, English Language Education Study Program of Sanata Dharma University have held The First Undergraduate Conference on ELT, Linguistics, and Literature in 2013 and The Second Undergraduate Conference on ELT, Linguistics, and Literature in, 2014. From the participants’ enthusiasm and the participation, this seminar was considered a success. As the action of improvement, English Language Education Study Program of Sanata Dharma University will hold The Third Undergraduate Conference on ELT, Linguistics, and Literature on June 13, 2015. This program is important in order to provide opportunities for undergraduate students to develop their English knowledge and skills. Besides that, they are given the chance to share their ideas, opinions, and thoughts in relation to language.

Principally, there are three major fields which will be accommodated in this conference: English Language Teaching (ELT), linguistics, and literature. Discussing ELT, undergraduate students can, for example, talk about the influence of English on education such as teaching English inside or outside class, designing appropriate materials, or managing classroom. Meanwhile, in linguistics, they can bring up, for instance, English phonology, English morphology, English pragmatics as the topics. Last but not least, discussing literature enables undergraduate students to investigate the role of English towards Indonesian literary works and other related topics.
