World Languages for Specific Purposes (WLSP): Transforming Language Education to Meet Professional Demands”

Dr. Diana Ruggiero
Associate Professor of Spanish
University of Memphis

The need for specialized communication skills in various professions is emerging in our increasingly interconnected world. Traditional language and cultural education systems struggle and need help to keep pace with these evolving demands. This keynote speech introduces the innovative concept of World Languages for Specific Purposes (WLSP), a dynamic educational approach meticulously designed to cater to the distinct needs of diverse professional fields.

Join us in exploring how WLSP is set to revolutionize language education, making it more applicable, engaging, and attuned to the real-world demands of various professions.

Meet Our Planning Committee

SECCLL has also created The Coastal Review, an online, open access, peer-reviewed, and indexed journal published by the Department of World Languages and Cultures at Georgia Southern University. The Coastal Review invites manuscripts on an open and rolling basis and publishes articles as soon as they are accepted. In addition, presenters at the annual Southeast Coastal Conference on Languages and Literatures (SECCLL) are encouraged to submit an extended and thoroughly revised manuscript of their presentation for possible inclusion in the Journal.
