8th International Conference on Language Teacher Education

The 8th International Conference on Language Teacher Education (LTE 2013), organized by the National Capital Language Resource Center (NCLRC), will be held in Washington, DC from May 30-June 1, 2013.

Designed for practitioners and researchers involved in the preparation and ongoing professional development of language teachers, LTE 2013 will address the education of teachers of all languages, at all instructional and institutional levels, and in many national and international contexts in which this takes place, including:

* English as a Second or Foreign Language (ESL/EFL) instruction;

* foreign/modern/world language teaching;

* bilingual education;

* immersion education;

* indigenous and minority language education; and

* the teaching of less commonly taught languages.

The conference aims to bring together teacher educators from these contexts to discuss and share research, theory, and best practices and to initiate and sustain a meaningful professional dialogue across languages, levels, and settings.

Pre-Conference Workshops will run from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM and 1:30 – 4:30 PM on Thursday, May 30, 2013. The Opening Plenary and Reception will follow at 5:00 PM.

  1. The agenda of “the teaching of less commonly taught languages” is
    exceptionally intriguing in that to the best of my knowledge nearly 400 languages are said to disappear,which will lead to loss of cultural diversity.

  2. I am interested in attending the conference and present a paper. Is this possible. Whom I should contact and how I can apply for it…

    Many thanks
