Welcome to the I International Conference on Applied Linguistics to Language Teaching: Towards Multilingualism,
an opportunity for researchers and teachers, both experts and novices,
to share the results of studies and didactic experiences.
Developing a multilingual competence of citizens is a lifelong
learning task, integrating the efforts of the educational system, the
scientific community, the experts in language learning and its teaching,
the certifying institutions, as well as the personal motivation and
effort of each individual. The interdisciplinary nature of applied
linguistics can address the multiple challenges of multilingualism.
The languages present in the Conference are English, French, German and Spanish, with a panel specific for each of them, composed of the following sections: oral presentations, workshops, posters and junior research projects.
Representatives of the four linguistic communities, invited to two round tables, will discuss about the challenges of multilingual society and the professional projection of applied linguistics in foreign language teaching.
The programme will be completed with four Master
Lectures, given by international experts in the field, who will be
discussing the most relevant and current issues in language acquisition,
foreign language learning and its teaching.
The papers presented at the Conference will be published in the "Revista Nebrija de Lingüística Aplicada".
Contributions will be presented in the language of the corresponding
language panel and will deal with its teaching (German, Spanish, French
and English). More than two contributions by one author will not be
Oral presentations: should have a predominantly
theoretical content and must connect research results into the thematic
lines of the Conference. The allotted time for each paper is 20 minutes,
to be followed by ten minutes for discussion. Presentations may be
signed by more than one author.
Workshops: will be delivered in 60 minutes and have a
practical approach (explanation of teaching experiences, new projects
for foreign language teaching, development of educational activities,
etc.). They must follow the workshop standards, taking into account the
active participation of attendees. The workshops may be signed by a
maximum of three authors.
Posters: will show both research findings and teaching
experiences held in the classroom and will be on display throughout the
Conference. Furthermore, a specific time in the program will be
allotted for the authors to make a short 5 minute exposition about their
work and to answer questions. Posters may be signed by more than one
