Meeting Description:

ConCALL was established in Spring 2014 as a professional development conference for linguists and language educators specializing in the languages of the Central Asian region, including both the Altaic and Eastern Indo-European languages spoken in the region, a diverse range of languages such as Azerbaijani, Dari, Kazakh, Mongolian, Pashto, Persian, Tajiki, Tibetan, Turkish, Tuvan, Uyghur, Uzbek, and more!

The main goal of ConCALL-2 is to bring together professionals across the fields to focus on research into how these specific languages are represented formally, as well as acquired by second/foreign language learners and also to present research driven teaching methods.

This year’s theme is “Continuing the Journey: Strengthening the Central Asian Language Community”.
