The 2018 Symposium that the ECSPM is co-organizing with the Technical University of Darmstadt in Germany will take place on 26-27 September. Academics, researchers and language education policy advisors from different countries will be addressing an audience of about 100 language professionals and students –all concerned with issues connected to languages and multilingualism.

On the first day of the Symposium, 26 September, which is dedicated to the European Day of Languages, we will look at various issues and projects on multilingualism across Europe mainly.

The second day, 27 September, is devoted to presentations dealing with ideas on how we can best contribute to the efforts for change not only in the way languages are taught and learnt in formal educational settings through a new theory of language and didactics paradigm, but also in the way that future and practicing language teachers are prepared at universities and other professional development centres contributing to views of education as a monolingual enterprise.
