PLL5 aims to expand horizons in the field of psychology of language learning and teaching. We welcome proposals on a wide range of topics relating to the many strands of thought and research within PLL including:

  • language learners and teachers as people and their various individual characteristics, including but not limited to: self-concept, motivation, identities, beliefs, agency, wellbeing, and emotions;

  • the dynamics of learning and teaching processes and interactions with others;

  • the interaction of social contexts and the psychology of language learning and teaching;

  • original and interdisciplinary approaches to qualitative, quantitative, and mixed method research;

  • innovative and practical classroom applications.


We welcome 300-word proposals from researchers and educators working in all contexts. We particularly encourage submissions from graduate students, early career researchers, and educators. PLL5, with its emphasis on forming connections among teachers and researchers around the world, will be an ideal venue for presenting research in progress and also practical applications of theoretical concepts.
