2022 MLTAWA State Conference


The Modern Language Teachers’ Association of Western Australia Inc (MLTAWA) will be holding our State Conference on July 29-30, 2022 at the Joondalup Resort in Perth, Western Australia.

The conference theme Shifting Paradigms in Languages Education is an open invitation for educators to explore current issues related to matters of equity, plurilingualism and shifting monolingual practices in Education through effective and innovative languages programs.

The conference will have a focus on the development, implementation and delivery of impactful programs to enhance students’ overall standards of education, critical thinking skills, intercultural perspectives and their ability to function effectively as global citizens in the modern world from a sustainable, dynamic and efficient perspective.

With a shared understanding of the key role Languages play in our students’ education, we would like to make one of the Conference goals to provide Language Teachers with critical tools to support a shift in existing paradigms that view languages as an expendable learning area in Education.
