Language Testing Forum 2010
Date: 19 November 2010
Venue: Lancaster University, Bailrigg Conference Centre
The Language Testing Forum will be held in Lancaster on November 19th -21st, 2010. This will be the 30th anniversary of the first Language Testing Forum, which gave rise not only to the Language Testing Newsletter, which later morphed into the journal Language Testing and the newsletter Language Testing Update, but also to ELT Documents 111: Issues in Language Testing, which Charles Alderson and Arthur Hughes edited and which was eventually published by the British Council in 1981.
We have decided that the theme of the 2010 LTF will be "Issues in Language Testing Revisited ", and that the three main issues addressed in 1980, namely General Language Proficiency, Testing for Specific Purposes and Communicative Language Testing, will be revisited in invited presentations. Discussants from academia and from language testing organisations have been invited to present a reaction to the relevant account of the 1980 discussions, from the perspective of 30 years on, and to reflect on developments since then (if any).
