      About CLaSIC

CLaSIC is a biennial conference, organized by the Centre for Language Studies (CLS) of the National University of Singapore (NUS), aims to bring together academics, researchers and professionals from Asia and beyond for a productive and rewarding exchange of insights, experiences, views and perspectives on current and future developments in foreign language teaching and learning. The conference serves a platform for participants to report on current research and practices in foreign language education and related disciplines. It will also provide an avenue for the discussion and critical examination of new and innovative concepts and approaches expected to have an impact on future practices.

The inaugural CLaSIC was held in December 2004 at the National University of Singapore and was a resounding success. The second CLaSIC in December 2006 echoed its success with around 180 participants from all over the world.
