The First APLJ Symposium: Enriching Language Education through Collaboration

The first ever APLJ Symposium will be held on Wednesday, May 8th 2019 at Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University's (APU) Center for Language Education (CLE). This will be a one-day event, which will include a bi-lingual panel session, a keynote presentation and a poster session. The presentations will be given by current and past APU faculty, but attendance at the event is open to all so please feel free to invite anyone you know who is interested in language education.

The presentations will be given by current and past APU faculty, but attendance at the event is open to all.
