3rd European Conference on Plurilingualism / 3ème Assises européennes du plurilinguisme

Plurilingualism does not mean the disappearance of borders, whether they are physical, political, religious, intellectual, artistic or any others. Such as a door, the border can be opened or closed; it is a marker of identity and of differentiation, but at the same time, it is a condition for a real and authentic exchange. Whatever the border, plurilingualism transforms them as areas of exchanges, enrichment and creativity, a creativity nurtured by an assumed and recognized otherness.

Such is the main set of themes for the 3rd European Conference on plurilingualism which will decline themselves into four henceforth standard registers: education, economy, politics and culture.

CLESOL's 13th National Conference for Community Languages and ESOL

Since its inception in 1990 the CLESOL conference has brought together the needs and interests of two groups of language teachers. Community languages are the first part of the CLESOL equation. Community languages teachers are committed to maintaining the first languages of migrant and refugee groups settled in Aotearoa New Zealand, and introducing those languages to others interested in learning them. Community languages teachers are bilingual (or multilingual) and their work is usually community based. The other half of the CLESOL equation is ESOL teachers. By comparison, ESOL teachers are a much bigger group who work in State education institutions (primary, secondary and tertiary), for private language schools, or as volunteer community tutors. The language of, and focus for, instruction is English, and ESOL teachers are predominantly monolingual native English speakers (but not exclusively so).

International Translation Day 2012: Translation as Intercultural Communication

Facilitated by the major changes and shifts in the global economy, culture and information technology in the last three decades, we now have a radically altered linguistic, socio-political and cultural context for intercultural communication. If "to be or not to be ... global" is hardly a question for people and nations in the contemporary era, then "to live or not to live … in translation" is no longer an option but a reality of our everyday life.

As brokers of peace and mutual understanding, FIT members will, in various ways and through different channels, celebrate International Translation Day (ITD) 2012 with the theme of "Translation as Intercultural Communication".

We in FIT are committed to supporting the translators, interpreters, and terminologists around the world working to bring greater intercultural understanding through their professional efforts.

There is no doubt that the fact that I'm multilingual and have learnt more languages since when I was a little boy, has meant that I can easily learn new languages.
