As the world’s population approaches 7 billion, we find ourselves able to interact with people from an ever-widening array of linguistic and cultural backgrounds. For English language teachers and researchers, these connections create new opportunities and pose daunting challenges. The 33rd annual Applied Linguistics Winter Conference seeks to explore how our teaching practices and our knowledge of language learning are bridged and shaped by this new, increasingly global context. Attendees will receive abundant information regarding theoretical and practical concerns pertinent to the general success of ELLs and to the teaching of English within today’s growing and changing international community.
