Multilingual Thursday, 2nd December

1. The next event in Universitas Negeri Jakarta’s monthly Zoominar series is at 09:00 UK time next Thursday,  9th December: Tony Capstick from Reading University on Using case studies to understand language and migration.

In Tony’s words, “In this talk, I explore the relationship between language and migration by drawing on real-world case studies from across the globe. I focus on how we can use examples from different multilingual settings to explain language use and language learning and I end the talk with opportunities for participants to reflect on their own language use in an era of global interconnectedness”.

The Zoom meeting ID [945 7096 2427] and password [PASCAUNJ] are all you need – I was sceptical last time, but it worked!

2. Three different ways of joining the Hornby Trust’s sixtieth anniversary conference in collaboration with the Association of English Teachers India (AINET – not so much an acronym as an anagram!)  and the Centre for English Language Education at Dr B. R. Ambedkar University, Delhi, Decentring ELT: Opportunities and Challenges, at 13:00 UK time tomorrow:
