WELCOME TO THE WA STATE LANGUAGE CONFERENCE

Welcome to the 2011 WA State Languages Conference website. Our conference’s theme this year is language education, training and community engagement.

We hope that this theme will work to support an important aim of our Advisory Body, which is to “Hear people speaking their language and passing it on.”

The aim of the 2011 WA State Languages Conference is to share knowledge and information, and identify successful approaches for engaging with communities and supporting language education and training. For this purpose we invite members of the community and education staff to attend. Additionally we intend to workshop plans for a State Representative model. Please come with some ideas on how, if, such a State Representative model could benefit your needs.

Our conference logo is based upon artwork by Sonya Edney’s Looking Forward, Looking Blak.
