Meeting Description:

Language Education and Emotions, the Third International Conference on Language Education and Testing, addresses a wide range of topics relating to affective factors in language teaching and learning.

Language Education and Emotions, the Third International Conference on Language Education and Testing will be held at Antwerp University (Belgium), from 26 to 28 November 2018. Its aim is to bring together scholars from all over the world to share their interest in the role and place of emotions in language learning and teaching.

The conference will provide an overview of the scientific status quo in the field of Language Education and Emotions. Secondly, it will identify the challenges our research is confronted with. This will allow us to build a research agenda for the future.

Language Education and Emotions will address a wide range of topics relating to affective factors in language teaching and learning, centering on:

- Emotions and the Language Learner: e.g. foreign language anxiety, self-esteem, motivation, willingness to communicate, inhibition, autonomy
- Emotions and the Language Teacher: e.g. self-efficacy, motivation, empathy
- Emotions and the Teaching and Learning Process: e.g. language teaching methods, approaches in language teaching, learning materials/ tools, CALL, evaluation

The keynote speakers at the conference are:

- Jane Arnold Morgan (University of Seville; author of Affect in Language Learning)
- Jean-Marc Dewaele (Birkbeck, University of London; author of Emotions in Multiple Languages)
- One paper will be selected as plenary presentation
