ERL Association gives me an opportunity to get together with people that connect language in education in various perspectives.

Regarding my profession, I understand ┬┤educational role of language┬┤as a language of instruction. Language in education is at the same time a key and crucial instrument that enables approaching children/pupils/learners/people to share anything they need.

I would like to become a valuable partner and belong to a professional or academic community.

    Disciplinary literacy, content through language and language through content (CLIL), mindfulness in language education.
