Languages - a unique ingredient of learning

Friday 8 - Saturday 9 March 2024

Language World is the annual conference and training event of the Association for Language Learning. It is a highlight of the year for teachers of all languages and attracts hundreds of participants each day from across all sectors. Delegates have the opportunity to listen to and be inspired by keynote speakers, attend workshops, reflect and debate as they look together at key areas relevant to their own context.

The theme of Language World 2024 is Languages - a unique ingredient of learning.

We will consider together many aspects of education today in multilingual Britain. What is unique about our subject? In what ways does the learning of a language support learners today beyond the classroom – from being a child to becoming an adult? What are the ingredients of a healthy learning experience?

  • Culture and International Contact
  • Curiosity and Observation
  • Connection at a personal level
  • Communication through all skills and modalities
  • A strong outward looking curriculum and external examinations
Following on from our conference last year we will continue to consider how the brain affects learning and how this can inform curriculum planning, the impact on teaching of the new GCSE and the importance of developing the intercultural agility needed to promote and support tolerance and respect for others. We are living through changing, somewhat challenging times and collaborative work is essential. We all benefit from access to research from around the world and collaboration across the key stages to university or training and jobs post 16 enables progress as we learn from each other.

We invite teachers, teacher educators, and researchers to join us in sharing ideas and best practice. Whatever your teaching experience, please do consider submitting a proposal. Submissions are welcome from educators who are starting out on their career to those with many years of experience. We are keen to include examples of successful, innovative practice.
