SLATE 2017 : The 3rd International Conference on the Globalization of Second Language Acquisition and Teacher Education
Call For Papers
Welcome to the 3rd International Conference on the Globalization of Second Language Acquisition and Teacher Education (G-SLATE 2017) held Monday and Tuesday, October 30-31, 2017 at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. Following the commencement and plenary, please join us for a special welcome brunch reception at the Hawaii Convention Center Monday, October 30th from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 noon.
As globalization advances and boundaries between countries fade away, the need to communicate in a second or multiple languages has altered the linguistic landscape. As a result, second language acquisition and foreign language teaching have progressed to the forefront of linguistics, providing a critical framework in understanding how language is acquired or learned and its pedagogical implications. Language today not only links nations but also empowers individuals toward greater upward mobility, all of which makes it an indispensable tool in modern society.
With the theme Breaking Barriers, the conference is a wonderful opportunity to share research, insights and techniques, and form professional networks in this burgeoning field of linguistics and education.
We welcome submission of 250 words in English by Friday, July 28, 2017. We strongly advise applicants to check our submission guidelines before submitting a proposal.
All proposals must be submitted through our online system or by clicking here.
