Language Teaching challenges in a globalised world


18-19 November 2017, European University, Nicosia, Cyprus

Call for papers

The role of English as a lingua franca in today’s globalized world is an undeniable fact which has accelerated the demand for fluency in English around the world and the need to improve the quality of teaching and learning in language teaching classrooms.

Throughout the twentieth century there has been an ongoing change of language teaching approaches and methods which have been informed by different assumptions related to the language knowledge and skills required by students in different educational contexts and the ways foreign languages are learnt and taught. These assumptions, in turn, have led to a number of implications for the education of language teachers.

Considering the fact that the field of language teaching and learning is subject to constant changes, this year’s conference focuses on the reconceptualization of language competence in today’s globalized world, the new approaches adopted by language teachers in different educational contexts and levels and the instructional approaches used by teacher educators and teacher trainers in preparing language teachers to deal with the challenges of the language teaching profession.

The conference will feature presentations, workshops and poster presentations. For more information please mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
