Multilingualism, Language Acquisition and Language Proficiency


September 22, 2017 (Friday), Fontys Lerarenopleiding Tilburg

Anéla organiseert ook dit jaar weer een Najaarsstudiedag, een ééndaagse conferentie waarbij leden en geïnteresseerde niet-leden van Anéla samenkomen en hun onderzoek presenteren rondom een thema. De Najaarsstudiedag zal deze keer plaatsvinden op vrijdag 22 september aan de Fontys Lerarenopleiding Tilburg met als thema Meertaligheid, Taalverwerving en Taalvaardigheid.


Call for Abstracts
The theme of this year is Multilingualism, Language Acquisition and Language Proficiency. This theme includes, but is not limited to, Second-Language Acquisition, Second Language Teaching, Bilingual Education, Native Language Proficiency, Professional Communication Skills, and Language Teacher Training. We cordially invite you to submit a proposal for a contribution.


The Anéla one day conference is hosted by is an institute that trains teachers this year. Therefore we particularly encourage teachers-in-training (that is, Master students and Research Master students from both academic and higher educational teacher trainings) to submit an abstract for a (poster)presentation about their research.


You can opt for three different presentation formats:

  1. a) presentation (25 minutes, including 5 minutes for discussion)
  2. b) presentation (like option a, with an added slot of 25 minutes for discussion)
  3. c) poster (a poster presentation includes a one minute pitch-presentation.)


Option b) is meant for topics that are suitable for discussion, for example recent developments, policy, and new lines of research. If you choose this option, please indicate in the abstract what the discussion roughly will be about.

To facilitate in-depth discussion, participants of the discussion will be required to attend the presentation first (however, it will be possible to attend the presentation only and leave before the discussion). This will be announced in the program.


Abstracts in Dutch or English are both welcome. The language of the abstract is also the language of the presentation.


Please submit your abstract (400 words, including references) via the online form.


The presentations will be organized in thematically organized sessions as much as possible.

There will be two keynote presentations. This webpage will be updated as soon as more information is available. Participants for the Najaarsstudiedag should register in advance. Registration will be possible from June 1, 2017.
