BAAL Language Learning and Teaching SIG Annual Conference
Recognizing complexity in language learning and teaching
Hosted by the School of Education, University of Leeds.
The 10th Annual Conference of this thriving Special Interest Group is this year being held at the University of Leeds, on the 3rd and 4th July (Thursday & Friday) 2014. These conferences have developed a reputation as small, friendly, intellectually stimulating events for applied linguists with a particular interest in language learning and teaching. The event will take place on the university’s main campus, close to the city centre.
This year’s theme is ‘Recognising complexity in language learning and teaching’.
Please note - we are unable to refund any payments for the conference fee (including the conference accommodation).
