The Asian Conference on Language Learning 2014
The International Academic Forum in conjunction with its global university and institutional partners is proud to announce the Fourth Annual Asian Conference on Language Learning, to be held from April 17-20 2014, at the Rihga Royal Hotel and the adjoining Osaka International Conference Center (OICC) in Osaka, Japan.
Hear the latest research, publish before a global audience, present in a supportive environment, network, engage in new relationships, experience Japan, explore Osaka and Kyoto, join a global academic community…
Join us as we celebrate the 4th Anniversary of the Asian Conference on Arts and Humanities, and explore new avenues of interdisciplinary study in the wonderfully rich physical and cultural environment of Japan. This international conference will again bring together university scholars working throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas and forge working relationships with each other over a stimulating, challenging, and fun long weekend.
Conference Theme 2014:
“Individual, Community, Society: Connecting, Learning and Growing”
What better place than the ACLL 2014 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? ACLL 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, ACLL 2014 promises to offer the same 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 ACLL 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 Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas, ACLL 2014 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.
We hope you can join us in Osaka 2014
