What is FIPLV?
The Fédération Internationale des Professeurs de Langues Vivantes, founded in Paris in 1931, is the only international multilingual association of teachers of languages. It has Non-governmental Organisation (NGO) ‘official partner’ status with UNESCO and has representation as an NGO with the Council of Europe. More about FIPLV here. For information about what membership of FIPLV brings you, please see below (after the news from our member association ALL).
Registration and Housing are now open and full information can be found at the Convention and Expo webpage. Please note that there is a very special members’ fee for members of FIPLV member associations – contact your national office for the FIPLV code that will enable you to access this rate. Please also note that there is a huge discount if you can book by the early bird deadline of July 11th. If you miss that, there is still an advance rate until October.
ALL – the UK Association for Language Learning – publishes Languages Today three times a year. Due to popular demand from international audiences, it has now introduced the Languages Today online edition, which enables ALL to provide its highly valued publication via a more timely and cost effective delivery mechanism, particularly for those located outside of the UK.
