Meeting Description:

The aim of the conference is to pursue dialogue between applied linguists and
theoreticians about methodological issues in linguistic education. In the era of
globalization, when political and administrative borders in the educational
sphere are brought down, issues of international and intercultural communication
in different professional areas become even more acute. There is a growing
demand to increase the efficiency of higher learning educational programs called
upon to enhance the second or foreign language communicative competence of
would-be specialists. Yet it is no secret that the existing methods of teaching
a foreign or second language are far from being satisfactory in terms of
expected efficiency. This is symptomatic of a general methodological problem: we
lack holistic understanding of how natural language shapes the cognitive domain
of human interactions. The conference aims to contribute to the ongoing
discussion of the problem in the cognitive/linguistic community.

Theme session proposals - 15 November 2009,
