BACKGROUND / ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Through global mobility of people and capital in the 21st Century, foreign languages have become an important commodity in advancing networks and building relationships, hence the need for discourse on how teaching and learning of these languages could be advanced to better the cause.
It is in this context that language practitioners, researchers, education specialists and scholars across different disciplines ought to converge and explore effective ways of advancing the teaching and learning of foreign languages to promote global mobility. To this end, this conference seeks to create a platform for interaction amongst stakeholders from far and wide to share their exciting research and pedagogies to broaden and diversify the teaching of foreign languages and cultures in the quest for promotion of global mobility.
The aim of this conference is to pull together everyone who teaches a foreign language under one roof to engage in discussions on the role played by foreign language teaching in transcending borders and enhancing globalisation. This conference is seen as a platform wherein everyone involved in teaching a foreign language gets a chance to share his/her experience and learn from others.
