The School of Language and Global Studies is pleased to host the 13th BAAL Language Learning and Teaching SIG at the University of Central Lancashire. This year’s theme will be 'Celebrating the diversity of language teaching’.
Language learning and teaching takes place in diverse settings around the world. The variety of contexts and acronyms such as MFL, EFL, EAL and ESOL can sometimes serve to highlight the differences within this diversity rather than the commonalities. Yet despite the apparent differences such as class size, language(s) learned, age of learners and reasons for language learning, there are many shared concerns. These relate, for example, to target language use, motivation, assessment, role of L1, language learning processes and teacher education.
