About Conference

WIUT is pleased to host the International Conference on Applied Linguistics and Language Education (ICALLE 2019) with a focus on the advancement of language education research and practice. Current research and practice in the field have to adjust to a rapid globalization of all spheres of life in order to account for all the changes taking place around us. At present, many classrooms pose different challenges to the educators and, therefore, linguists and teachers should come together in order to find the ways to meet them and accommodate the needs of their learners. There is a need to provide a space for a dialogue in Central Asia, therefore, we hope this conference becomes a good tradition to bring together teachers and researchers from Central Asia and other parts of the world to enhance our current knowledge and practice with regard to language education. 

The conference accepts research papers related to applied linguistics and language education on the following topics (but not limited to):

  • Foreign language acquisition
  • Issues in language testing and assessment
  • Modern trends in language education
  • Curriculum and instruction
  • Language policy and planning
  • Pragmatics
  • Discourse analysis
  • Issues in translation
  • Sociolinguistics
  • Heritage languages (Central Asian languages study)
