to provide a forum for academics in the fields of foreign language
learning and teaching to report theoretical and empirical developments
in their areas of specialty and to exchange ideas through paper
presentations. The conference aims particularly to promote
collaboration between researchers in foreign language learning and
classroom practitioners, both of whom can significantly inform and
enrich each other through dissemination of their research findings.

paper and poster presentations is English. Abstracts will be reviewed
