International Conference on Issues in Language Teaching and Learning Amongst Non-Native Speakers (ILANNS)
About ICMAL 2021
ICMAL 2021, to be organised by UiTM Penang Academy of Language Studies, aims at providing a platform for teachers, educators, academicians, researchers, policy makers as well as language enthusiasts to meet up and exchange ideas apart from creating a professional network and relationship. It also aims at providing an avenue for language teachers and others, relevant to the field of language teaching and learning to communicate and discuss research findings as well as new advances in forming a discourse community with similar knowledge, language and goals.
In addition to this, the linguistic scenery which has seen a major shift in producing a multi-literate society serves as a ground for these language enthusiasts to keep abreast with the current trends and updates that the Conference hopes to materialize, by bringing together the language collaborators in the limelight.
