Language as a Business Tool:
Communicating in the Global Market 
 

The goal of most students is to get an interesting, fulfilling job after graduation. What language tools can help them succeed? How can we help prepare them for the global market? This conference attempts to address questions about how acquiring a second language will help make their dream job a reality.

ビジネスツールとしての言語:
グローバル市場で図るコミュニケーション

多くの学生にとって卒業後の目標は、やりがいと面白さのある仕事に就くことだ。では、どのような言語ツールがその手助けとなるのだろう?学生がグローバルな市場で働くことへの備えを、教師はいかにして後押しできるのか?本研究大会では、第二言語習得が憧れの仕事に就くことにどう役立つのか、という問いについて取り上げる。

 

***Call for papers***

This year's conference will begin with registration and a networking event on Saturday, 26 January. This will be followed by a full lineup of presentations, student showcase, a symposium with leaders in education and business, and publisher displays on Sunday the 27th from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm at Hokkai-Gakuen University in Sapporo. 

Our keynote speaker will be Marcos Benevides from J. F. Oberlin University, Tokyo. The title of his talk is "A task-based framework for business communication" (ビジネスにおけるコミュニケーションのためのタスクに基づいたフレームワーク).

While the business focus of this conference call suggests an adult learner focus, abstracts from all steps of the education process are welcome from young learners through to ongoing adult education and everything in between.

今年度の研究大会の日程は次の通り。初日の1月26日(土曜日)は大会受付とネットワーキングイベント。翌27日(日曜日)9:30-17:30は各種発表、学生によるショーケース、さらに教育、ビジネス分野のリーダー達によるシンポジウムと出版社の展示を予定。会場は札幌市にある北海学園大学。
 
基調講演者は桜美林大学講師のマルコス・ベネビデス氏。
