MULTILING 2018 : I International Conference on Research in Multilingualism: Innovation and New Challenges

Organized by members of ALCE (Applied Linguistics in Language and Culture Acquisition) at the University of Oviedo, this multilingual international conference (English, Spanish, German, and French) connects the world of actual teaching in the classroom to that of educational design and linguistic policy, and all of them to the empirical research in the learning and acquisition of one or several languages and cultures in linguistic immersion contexts. For this reason, the congress is of interest to those who are in contact with any aspect of learning one or several foreign languages in any educational level, or those who wish to do so in a near future.
