BYU hosts Foreign Language Education and Technology Conference Aug. 5-10

The fifth Foreign Language Education and Technology Conference will be held Aug. 5-10 on the Brigham Young University campus.

The FLEAT 5 conference, held once every five years, promotes the exchange of theory and techniques of technology in the study of languages.

Originating in Japan in 1981, the conference alternates between Japan and North America.

"BYU is fortunate to have this once-in-a-decade opportunity to showcase our language programs and the technology we have developed to support them," said Harold Hendricks, supervisor, Humanities Learning Resource Center.

Open to instructors, administrators, technologists, vendors or students who include the use of technology in some facet of language learning, the conference will bring together people from around the world to learn about advancements in language technology theory and practice in a cross-cultural setting.

A registration fee will be required. Registration information is available on the Web at fleat5.byu.edu.

The conference is sponsored by the College of Humanities at BYU, BYU Conferences and Workshops, the International Association for Language Learning Technology and the Japan Association for Language Education and Technology.

For a schedule of events or more information, visit the conference Web site at fleat5.byu.edu, or call Harold Hendricks at (801) 422-6448.
