The Applied English Department of I-Shou University invites interested presenters and guests for an international symposium on"Applied English Education:
Trends, Issues & Interconnections"
Conference Date: March 9 (Friday), 2007
Venue: I-Shou University, Kaohsiung County(International Conference Room, 10th Floor, Administration Building)
About the symposium:
The concept of ‘applied English’, unlike the one of ‘applied sciences’, is controversial. The successful use of a foreign language in job-related contexts requires a sufficient command of general language skills in order to avoid misunderstandings.
Our symposium focuses on current trends and issues in this field, such as the dis/advantages of teaching applied English for specific purposes, the practical outcome for graduates, and the incorporation of research findings into curricula. As well, our symposium seeks to explore the integration of applied English teaching with other disciplines, and also seeks ways and means to foster and facilitate interconnections among diverse scholars.
In addition, topics related to a broader concept of “applied English” may also be accepted.
Several panels and workshops will be organized for the symposium. Papers will be selected for publication after the conference.
