The International Conference on Multilingual Acquisition and Multilingual Education (IConMAME 2019)


The IConMAME 2019 conference aims to bring together academics from around the world to report on their various research work related to multilingual acquisition and multilingual education.

  1. bi-/multilingual acquisition
  2. bi-/multilingual education
  3. bi-/multilingual language policies
  4. bi-/multiculturalism
