Teaching and learning languages in the shadow of lingua franca
15 – 16 November 2019
A new lingua franca influences policies, teaching methods and learning processes in all languages. This conference aims to define current state, map dynamic changes and address new challenges in plurilingual teaching and learning in higher education. Together, we are going to look for, and hopefully find, ways that will help teachers enrich their teaching repertoires and learners their learning techniques effectively.
- Languages and cultures in contact
- Learners and processes of learning
- Teachers, their roles and methods
- Evaluation and its challenges
French, German, Spanish, Russian and English as lingua franca.
