39th Annual International Conference on Language Teaching and Learning & Educational Materials Exhibition (JALT 2013)

  • Conference Call
  • The Japan Asso­ci­a­tion for Lan­guage Teach­ing (JALT) is kindly invit­ing you to par­tic­i­pate in the 39th Annual Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Lan­guage Teach­ing and Learn­ing (JALT 2013), held Octo­ber 25 – 27, 2013 in Kobe, Japan.

    Learn­ing is a Life­long Voyage

    We start to learn even before we are born and con­tinue learn­ing through­out our lives. It’s an impor­tant part of the life voy­age of each human being. Every one of us has learn­ing sto­ries — our own sto­ries as well as the ones we con­tribute to as friends, part­ners, par­ents, and teach­ers. What are your learn­ing sto­ries? What are your learn­ing mem­o­ries? Bring them to Kobe in 2013 and share them with your col­leagues. JALT2013 promises to be a cap­ti­vat­ing port on your life­time learn­ing voyage.
