Language Learning and Teaching Conference: Developing Speaking Skills

15th September 2017, 09:00, University of Leeds

The purpose of the conference is to bring together researchers and language teachers working in Higher Education in the UK and internationally to discuss the nature and challenges currently faced in the field of language learning and teaching. This conference intends to:

  • Push forward the under-researched field of speaking skills by showcasing original research and innovative practice.
  • Support a closer integration of language learning theory and pedagogical practice.
  • Bridge the gap between MFL, EFL and EAP and provide a forum for all practitioners to develop collaborative projects, across language education regardless of the discipline.
  • Act as a catalyst for collaboration across institutions.

Deadline for submitting abstracts: 24th April
