“Why can’t we be friends?”
Reuniting Linguistics and Language Education
Despite the merits that it can offer language teachers, linguistics often seems divorced from EFL education. The 2015 Michinoku English Education Summit (MEES) aims to provide opportunities for English educators to explore the dynamics between linguistics and EFL education. In doing so, teachers will gain a wealth of new language insights as well as practical teaching ideas. This MEES conference will appeal to any English language educator interested in the relationship between language and language teaching, regardless of their teaching context.
