The ALTE 6th International Conference will provide a unique multilingual forum, sharing insights and practical knowledge gained from teaching and testing a huge range of languages in different contexts around the world.

The conference will consider teaching, learning and assessment:

Delegates – including researchers, teachers, testing specialists and policy-makers – will discuss:
