2014 Conference Theme: “Individual, Community, Society: Connecting, Learning and Growing”

The 2013 event was a great celebration of language learning and teaching with 300 registrants from over 40 countries sharing their ideas, research and experiences,  and we look forward to building on the conversations and partnerships that have developed over the past year.

What better place than an IAFOR conference to connect with like-minded teachers and researchers, to learn about current trends and cutting edge developments, and to grow as a teacher, as a researcher, as a member of the profession? ECLL 2014 is the place to hear about best practices as they are implemented in language classrooms around the world, and with IAFOR conferences regularly attracting participants from 40 countries, this year’s event promises to offer exceptional opportunities for networking, whether it is during sessions, over coffee during a break, or at the conference dinner.

As always, we invite language educators, administrators, policy makers, and others to join us at ECLL 2014 as we share what we are doing individually and as a community of teachers making our mark on society.

The aim of this International Conference is to encourage academics, scholars and practitioners representing a exciting diversity of countries, cultures, and religion to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum encouraging respectful dialogue. By bringing together a number of university scholars working throughout Europe and beyond to share ideas, ECLL 2014 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.

We look forward to seeing you in Brighton in 2014!
