Abstract


The 3rd International Conference on Modern Foreign Languages, Linguistics and Literature took place in Preston, United Kingdom, on June 20, 2016. The conference was organised with the support of the School of Language, Literature and International Studies (now School of Humanities and Social Sciences) of the University of Central Lancashire, under the umbrella of the Research Excellence Framework, the new system for assessing the quality of research in UK higher education institutions (co-ordinated by Dr Michael Thomas). The conference was aimed at giving early-career researchers the opportunity to disseminate their research and to network with other researchers, and it was attended by more than 80 people, among which 33 speakers from different corners of the British Isles, and from abroad, including countries such as Bulgaria, Ireland, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, USA, Thailand, China and India. The success of the conference is also owed to the excellent supporting team of volunteers who helped out on the day, and especially Dr Oris Tom-Lawyer, Miguel Angel Saona-Vallejos, Mawaheb Khojah and Baetty from the University of Central Lancashire. The conference was also attended by our guest keynote speaker Prof. Hayo Reinders, currently Dean of the Graduate School of Education and Director of the Anaheim University Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in TESOL Program.
