Conversations Across Borders

Language learning and language teaching carry us across all sorts of borders: national, cultural, disciplinary, psychological, and of course linguistic. JALT’s 40th annual conference will explore this phenomenon with its theme, “Conversations Across Borders.” We welcome submissions for innovative presentations that reflect the vast possibilities within and surrounding the field of language education.

The Call for Presentations closed February 11, 2014. Acceptances will be announced the week of April 14, 2014.

- Conference co-chairs: Peter Hourdequin and Diane Nagatomo
