Meeting Description:

We are delighted to invite you to the Language for Specific Purposes: Trends and Perspectives International Conference to be held on 17-18 September 2021 in Budva, Montenegro. The conference is organized within the Erasmus+ ReFLAME (Reforming Foreign Langugaes in Academia) which is coordinated by the Faculty of Philology (University of Montenegro) in partnership with the University of Donja Gorica, and Mediterranean University from the Montenegrin side and the University for Foreigners of Perugia, University of Warsaw and University of Zagreb from the EU side.

The conference aims to provide an international forum for sharing experience, knowledge and results in theory, methodology and practice of teaching languges for specific purposes (LSP). LSP is understood as an approach to language teaching that targets the current and/or future academic or occupational needs of learners, focuses on the necessary language, genres and skills to address these needs, and assists learners in meeting these needs through the use of general and/or discipline specific teaching materials and methods (Anthony, 2018: 10-11).
The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers of different strands and practitioners to focus on understanding modern LSP concepts and approaches establishing the links with the needs of both the academia and the labor market.

Authors are invited to contribute to the conference by submitting papers that illustrate research results, projects, surveying works and experiences that describe significant advances and good practice in any of the LSP areas.
