Informal language learning inside and beyond the classroom: New perspectives

Online conference (Zoom platform), 12 November 2021

Università di Pavia

With the constant expansion of L2 learning affordances, traditional language learning shades into informal language acquisition and novel combinations of formal and informal learning emerge. This change in linguistic landscape dramatically affects English but also involves other L2s, calling for ‘a new model of what constitutes a linguistic environment for learning’ (Arnbjörnsdóttir, Ingvarsdóttir 2018). The conference will explore informal learning as it arises in a variety of settings, as those created in schools and universities through CLIL and EMI, and beyond when accessing traditional and new media in online and mobile environments.
