JALT2013: Learning is a Lifelong Voyage

39th Annual International Conference on Language Teaching and Learning & Educational Materials Exhibition Kobe Convention Center, Portopia, Kobe, Hyogo, Japan October 25th - 28th, 2013

Learning is a Lifelong Voyage

We start to learn even before we are born and continue learning throughout our lives. It’s an important part of the life voyage of each human being. Every one of us has learning stories—our own stories as well as the ones we contribute to as friends, partners, parents, and teachers. What are your learning stories? What are your learning memories? Bring them to Kobe in 2013 and share them with your colleagues. JALT2013 promises to be a captivating port on your lifetime learning voyage.
