Welcome to ELF 13
Let's go ELF 2022: Expanding the Orientations
National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) warmly welcomes you to the 13th International Conference of English as a Lingua Franca (ELF 13), to be held in Tainan City, Taiwan, in 2022. ELF13 in Taiwan follows the successes of the previous ELF conferences held in Helsinki (2008), Southampton (2009), Vienna (2010), Hong Kong (2011), Istanbul (2012), Rome (2013), Athens (2014), Beijing (2015), Lleida (2016), Helsinki (2017), London (2018), and Medellín (2019).
ELF 13 seeks to explore the rapidly-growing phenomenon of English as a Lingua Franca from linguistics, psychology, education, corpus studies, sociolinguistics, English learning/teaching, and language policy in diverse settings where English is the contact language for international communication. Together we will explore the implications and applications of ELF across disciplines.
Carrying on the vision of the past 12 ELF conferences, ELF 13 will serve as another stepping stone in bridging the gap among ELF users, educators and scholars across geographical and cultural boundaries.
ELF is happening around us. LET’s GO ELF in Tainan in 2022!
ELF 13 Forerun Webinar
The COVID-19 epidemic has changed our lives in the past 2 years, and also provided us new ways of communication across time zones and boarders easier than before. The Organization Committee of ELF 13 will host a webinar forum on October 26-27, 2021 so we can get together to share ideas in the virtual venue.
This webinar forum will serve as a forerun conference of onsite ELF 13 to be held in Taiwan in the winter of 2022. The forum features 5 invited speeches and 1 colloquium. We cordially welcome you to join the ELF community in October online!
