Meeting Description:

The III International Conference on Applied Linguistics to Language Teaching: Towards Plurilingualism, is an opportunity for researchers and teachers, both experts and novices, to share the results of their studies and didactic experiences.

Developing a multilingual competence of citizens is a lifelong learning task, integrating the efforts of the educational system, the scientific community, the experts in language learning and its teaching, the certifying institutions, as well as the personal motivation and effort of each individual. The interdisciplinary nature of applied linguistics can address the multiple challenges of multilingualism.

The languages present in the Conference are English, French, German and Spanish, with a panel specific for each of them, composed of the following sections: oral presentations, workshops, posters and junior research projects.

In this third edition of the International Conference we have as a novelty our invitation to researchers and teachers of other languages, due to the interest they may have in the development of plurilingual competencies. Therefore, we are glad to receive Euskera and Portuguese as guest languages.

Representatives of the six linguistic communities, will discuss in two round tables about the challenges of the multilingual society and about different aspects of the assessment of communicative language competence in foreign languages.

The programme is rounded off with a series of master lectures given by international leading experts in the most recent aspects of the Conference's topics.

Those papers selected by a group of anonymous experts for their remarkable interest and scientific rigour will be published in a collective book of scientific nature.

Call for Abstracts:
