Online conference on early L2 learning and teaching – Registration open // Call for Posters
On September 22-23, 2022, we will be hosting the international conference ‘Advances in Teaching Foreign Languages to Young Learners’ (ATFLY 2022) as an online event. It provides an exchange platform for current empirical insights into the learning and teaching of foreign languages to young learners with a special focus on primary school contexts (age 5-12) with the aim to better understand the factors which contribute to effective and motivating early foreign language teaching.
The program of academic talks is available at https://younglearners.uni-wuppertal.de/en/programme.html. Keynotes will be given by
Prof. Yuko Butler, University of Pennsylvania, USA
Prof. Florence Myles, University of Essex, UK
Prof. Heiner Böttger, Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, Germany
Prof. Norbert Schlüter, Leipzig University, Germany

In addition, we’re inviting proposals for poster presentations on research projects in the field of Teaching Foreign languages to Young Learners. While the conference language is English, research on any target language and from any part of the globe is welcome. The Call for Posters is open until 3 June 2022.
