ALL Gathers Language Practitioners for an Opportunity to Work Together

This weekend the Association for Language Learning (ALL) is organizing a major event in the United Kingdom for teachers and professionals in the area of language.

The theme for the 2006 edition is “Working Together”; this event is an opportunity for all the practitioners to get together and discuss their views on language teaching. From the exchange of personal experiences and beliefs, it is then possible to improve the teaching system with innovative and creative methods and discover new ways to increase the interest of students and the public in general in learning languages. Furthermore, this is a great chance to meet old friends again and make new ones.

ALL is the biggest subject association in the sector of language teaching, which has the ongoing aim of promoting the learning of foreign languages. Further, it encourages high standards of language teaching and supports the professionals in the area. ALL also provides information, publications and organizes events such as Language World 2006 to spread and assert the importance of languages in our multicultural society.
