The Canadian Association of Applied Linguistics / L'Association canadienne de linguistique appliquée, also known as ACLA, is an officially bilingual scholarly association with approximately 200 members from across Canada and elsewhere. ACLA's overarching objective is the promotion of research and teaching in all areas of applied linguistics across Canada.
This year we have a program over three days which includes close to 100 papers, several symposia, and two excellent keynotes lined up. Dr. Leila Ranta will be presenting on the topic of whether the field of second language acquisition can make more of a difference in relation to grammar instruction. Dr. Laurent Cammarata will be addressing the issue of optimal integration of content-language-literacy in classrooms.
