Languages in the UK: Bridging the gap between the classroom and the
community in language learning

This two-day seminar will address issues of language learning and its
relationship to community use of language, drawing on the three strands of
language learning most pertinent to the evolving social composition and
linguistic diversity in the UK:



   -  English language learning of migrants to the UK
   -  Learning of UK autochthonous minority languages, such as Welsh,
   Scottish Gaelic and Irish
   - Maintenance of heritage languages of migrants to the UK, such as
   Punjabi and Cantonese​



The seminar will focus on the challenges speakers of all three strands face
when transitioning from classroom learning to community use of the
language.  We invite papers from academics and practitioners on any aspect
of language learning within one (or more) of these three strands.  Seminar
participation is restricted to twenty places.  There will be *no fee for
seminar attendance*, but attendees will be expected to pay for all
travel/accommodation/meals/refreshments themselves.



Please submit an abstract  (in English) of no more than 300 words and a
statement of no more than 200 words explaining how attendance will benefit
your teaching/research by March 10, 2014. Please put 'BAAL/Cambridge
University Press Seminar' as the subject line and e-mail to
Cassie.SmithChristmas at uhi.ac.uk



Information on travel and accommodation will be e-mailed to all
participants prior to the seminar.  There is also the possibility of an
optional sightseeing trip on Saturday, May 31st to local sites such as the
Callanish Standing Stones and the Gearrannan Blackhouse Village given there
