Meeting Description:

The 9th International Language Conference

‘The Importance of Learning Professional Foreign Languages for Communication between Cultures’

Conference Announcement

Globalisation and intercultural communication are two important phenomena that characterize contemporary society and labour market. Consequently, a good command of foreign languages has become essential for professionals from all walks of life. In response to the ever increasing need for good foreign language skills, researchers and practitioners constantly strive to enhance the teaching and learning process as well as adapt it to the current needs and trends.

For that reason we invite domestic and foreign researchers and practitioners in the field of LSP to participate at the conference to exchange and disseminate their expertise and good practice in foreign language teaching and learning. The 9th International Language Conference on the Importance of Learning Professional Foreign Languages for Communication between Cultures will take place at the Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Maribor from 22 to 23 September 2016.

Practitioners, researchers and postgraduate students interested in joining the discussion on current and emerging trends in foreign language teaching and learning are welcome to submit proposals for papers or workshops or join the conference as a listener.
