Description

The aim of the conference is to gather researchers, language specialists and educators from all levels and backgrounds to discuss the theory, practice and the wider context of language teaching. The event will take a cross-cultural approach to involve minority community languages, English as a foreign language and European or international languages. With this broad approach in mind, the event will also work as a community-building exercise in order to create or reinforce the links between the different actors in the field of language education and promoters of multilingualism in the context of Northern Ireland.

Reflecting on recent positive developments in advancing linguistic diversity in Northern Ireland, this conference will provide a space for rethinking and re-examining language pedagogy in multilingual and international contexts, including discussion panels focused on gender equality and diversity, graduate language teaching assistants and internationalisation.
