Call for Papers

The Institute of Foreign Languages, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Brno University of Technology cordially invite you to join us at the international conference on:

Languages for Specific Purposes in Higher Education:
Current Trends, Approaches and Issues

Ever since the 1980s teaching foreign languages for specific purposes has assumed a particularly interesting methodological position. No matter whether understood as separate from general second-language acquisition or only a sideway project, it is a worthy endeavor. This conference aims at exploring current concerns of LSP in order to find out in which direction the field is moving. Hoping to succeed in this goal, we invite you to share your research results, theoretical ideas and practical insights in a fruitful discussion.

Submissions are welcome in the following areas:

Teaching writing skills

Teaching languages to students with special needs

Teaching LSP and communication skills

Technologies and Media
