Aims and Scope

The GlobELT 2020 conference is organised to provide a high quality academic platform for the communities of EFL/ESL/ELT and the allied sciences to promote connections between theory and practice, and explore different perspectives on the application of research findings into different practices.

Researchers, experts, scholars and teachers are invited to submit their papers to the GlobELT 2020:
6th International Conference on Teaching and Learning English as an Additional Language.

All proposals will be blind-reviewed by at least two members of the editorial and advisory board for scope and quality.

We hope that this conference will create a friendly occasion for all to share perspectives and research findings from a wide variety of educational contexts. We also dearly value possible friendships and partnerships made and insights gained at the conference and hope they will go beyond your participation in the conference, leading to better understanding and appreciation of our profession from an international stance.
