Meeting Description:

The International Hybrid Conference “Future Challenges in Early Language Learning and Multilingual Education” (ELLME2022) is organised by the Department of Languages and Literature Education of the University of Granada. It is a joint conference of the EECERA SIG “Multilingual Childhoods”, AILA ELLReN (Early Language Learning Research Network) and ALExI network (Spanish Network on FL learning at preschool).

It aims to facilitate a forum for discussion for researchers and practitioners on language learning and multilingual education in the early years (0-12 years old) in diverse sociolinguistic backgrounds (additional languages, foreign languages, heritage languages, endangered languages, minority languages, sign language, etc.).

It is planned in a hybrid format: on-site and virtual participation will be offered, although we would love to see as many of you as possible in Granada.

Call for Papers:

We hope we can all enjoy this post-covid event and we encourage both researchers and practitioners to participate in our conference. We offer different possibilities of participation both on-site and online, as well as publication opportunities for high-quality papers. Full information about the call for papers can be found at

Deadline for abstract submission: October 31, 2021.

Both English and Spanish are accepted.

Communications should deal with any of the following topics, either focusing on children from 0-6 or from 6-12, or both, and contextualised in any multilingual context (second language, foreign language, additional language, minority language, heritage language, sign language, etc.):
1) Early language teaching and learning
