Meeting Description:

You are cordially invited to submit your abstract for a workshop on second language learning and teaching, which will be held at Seoul National University on October 23-24, 2020, as part of the 2020 SNU International Conference on Linguistics. This workshop will cover a range of topics related to second language learning and teaching in and out of the classroom. In an attempt to close the gap between theory and practice, the workshop aims primarily to bring researchers and practitioners all around the world closer together to help exchange their ideas on practical and theoretical issues on teaching and discuss research directions in the future.

It is believed that teaching practices could be improved by considering various aspects, such as the quantity and quality of input and output, language learning aptitude, motivation, learner attention and interest, and many other learner internal factors, and the physical as well as sociocultural environment as learner external factors.

Specific topics for this workshop include, but are not limited to:
- Second Language Acquisition
- Instructed Second Language Acquisition
- Sociocultural Factors in Second Language Learning and Teaching
- Cognitive Factors in Second Language Learning and Teaching
- Linguistic Factors in Second Language Learning and Teaching
- Teaching English as a Second/Foreign Language
- Teaching Korean as a Second/Foreign Language
- Second/Foreign Language Teaching for Specific Purposes
- Teaching Methodology
- Individual Difference Factors in Learning
- English as a Lingual Franca
- World Englishes
- Assessment
- Curriculum Development
- Teacher Education
- Literacy
- Multimedia
- Artificial Intelligence and Future Education

We are delighted to announce that Prof. William O’Grady (University of Hawaii at Manoa) will deliver the keynote speech (title TBC) in this workshop.

[N.B.: We presently plan on a face-to-face conference, but if it is not feasible owing to the COVID-19 issue, the conference will take place virtually (the decision will be made in mid-August); in that case, each presenter will be required to send to the workshop organizer the ZOOM/other videoconferencing recording file of his/her presentation.]
