THE FIRST
INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON LINGUISTICS
AND LANGUAGE TEACHING
 
I-CoLLate
 
12 – 13 May 2015
YOGYAKARTA STATE UNIVERSITY
INDONESIA


BACKGROUND
 
In the globalization era, language plays an important role in the human’s life. As a cultural product, language is a mirror of a community’s life. The community’s culture and behavior are reflected in the language used by the community members.

Different languages reflect different cultures. This linguistic diversity should “unify” instead of “breaking” the community’s life; therefore, it is necessary for us to have a thorough understanding of language and culture.

In relation to this, schools, as the centre of formal language learning, constitute the vehicles of the learning of culture, understanding of culture, politeness in language, and contrasting the language and culture towards effective CAFR (Common Asian Framework of Reference for Language)-based learning.
 

OBJECTIVES

1. Promoting the use of languageas a vehicle of cultural understanding.

2. Promoting the use of Asian languages as a lingua franca in Asia.

3. Promoting CAFR (Common Asian Framework of Reference for Language)-based learning and teaching.
