Call for Papers
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 4th International Students and Young Researchers Conference ?Foreign Language Competence as a Platform for Professional Development in the 21st century ? that will be held at the Zhytomyr Ivan Franko State University on April 18th , 2018.
The aim of the conference is to bring together local and international students who study English or other foreign languages for academic and occupational purposes to learn, communicate, exchange ideas, and engage in an international and cross-cultural experience. The conference is an opportunity for young people to build new networking to support in their personal and professional development.
This year, our interdisciplinary conference turns its attention to academic and research interests and needs of students who study English or any other foreign language as a lingua franca. Participants are invited to demonstrate their command of this language when speaking on their academic and research findings and challenges in different professional and scientific fields as well as to dwell on how foreign language learning relates in content (i.e. in its themes and topics) to particular disciplines, occupations and activities of the learners. The use of foreign languages for specific purposes from different cultural perspectives is of special interest at the conference.
