Language Studies: Practical Implications for the Society.

About us

This symposium is organized and hosted by the Applied Linguistics Research Lab (ALLAB) at the College of Humanities, Prince Sultan University (PSU). It aims at promoting Applied Linguistic research in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Area through bringing together international names and high-quality research in various Applied Linguistic disciplines. These include, but are not limited to, Language Learning and Teaching, Second Language Acquisition, Assessment, Translation and Stylistics, Corpus Linguistics and Discourse Analysis, and Psycholinguistics and Bilingualism.

In 2020, ALR will feature language studies with an applied focus that support societal development. This comes in line with the first theme of the Saudi Vision 2030 with an eye on enhanced education and research opportunities. With international plenary speakers, carefully selected paper presentations / posters, and intensive workshops, we strive to offer an exceptional experience for researchers in Applied Linguistics. The symposium is organized with these objectives in mind:

  • To raise awareness of the recent research findings in language studies.
  • To enhance the quality and visibility of Applied Linguistics research in Saudi Arabia.
  • To establish a conducive platform for regional/ international research collaborations.
  • To support budding researchers to learn from prominent research figures.
  • To establish necessary linkages between Applied Linguistics research and its real-life applications, particularly in language teaching and translation.
  • To provide consultations to all individuals and institutions in relation to language studies, including banks, corporations, language schools and translation institutes.
