PROMOUVOIR LA DIVERSITÉ LINGUISTIQUE ET LA COMMUNICATION INTERCULTURELLE [en]

La 5e conférence internationale ALTE est l’un des plus grands évènements multilingues de la communauté mondiale des organismes certificateurs en langues. ALTE Paris 2014 est l’opportunité rêvée pour entendre des personnalités influentes, aborder des enjeux clé et rencontrer des collègues du monde entier. Cet évènement, qui se déroule sur deux jours, s’appuie sur la réussite de la 4e conférence internationale ALTE, tenue en 2011, et élargit le débat vers de nouveaux horizons encore plus fascinants. Les conférenciers pléniers incarnent la diversité et la portée de l’événement, et témoignent de l’importance, toujours croissante, du secteur de l’évaluation en langues.

La conférence aura lieu à Paris, du jeudi 10 au vendredi 11 avril, à la Maison Internationale, située la Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris. Ce lieu incontournable est un point de rendez-vous idéal pour le public d’ALTE, toujours plus international ; Paris est également le siège du CIEP (Centre international d’études pédagogiques), co-organisateur de la conférence. La capitale française reste une destination très courrue, compte tenu de son accessibilité, son offre en hébergement, et sa richesse culturelle.

Le programme de la conférence est disponible sur le site officiel

THE INFLUENCE OF ALTE ON THE MULTILINGUALISM DEBATE

A message from Dr Michael Milanovic, ALTE Manager

"Ever since 1990, when ALTE was first established, we have actively debated and discussed the multitude of issues underpinning language assessment – not just through the many technical projects and training sessions we undertake, but also through initiatives designed to raise awareness of language assessment issues, and to provide leadership in the global language debate.

To celebrate the annual European Day of Languages, for example, ALTE co-hosts events within the European Parliament with EP Vice-President MEP Miguel Angel Martínez, responsible for multilingualism, MEP Hannu Takkula, Member of the Committee on Culture and Education, and Cambridge English Language Assessment. ALTE has also been an active member of the European Commission’s Civil Society Platform for Multilingualism since it was established in 2009 ; as part of this, ALTE was closely involved with the Poliglotti4.eu project, and the setting up of a Language Observatory to capture good practice and instigate policy research.

Since 2003, ALTE has also held INGO status with the Council of Europe, enabling collaboration on an even wider range of projects with far-reaching impacts.

Relationships such as these, together with our proactive involvement in ongoing debate and policy discussion, has made ALTE in many ways the embodiment of multilingualism - an influential voice, and a rich resource of knowledge and understanding of the many issues underpinning strategic policy direction, and implementation both in the classroom and in wider society.

The ALTE 5th International Conference will therefore be an un-missable opportunity for anyone involved or interested in multilingualism – whether teacher, academic, policy maker or involved observer – to join ALTE and debate the issues involved, and to influence where we go from here.

We look forward to seeing you in Paris."
