Call For Papers

Dear Researchers,


We are happy to announce that the 5th International Conference on Research in Applied Linguistics- ULEAD ICRAL 2021, hosted by Bolu Abant İzzet Baysal University, will be held online[1] on October 22-24, 2021. 


ICRAL takes as its premise that applied linguistics underpins a vast range of disciplines. We intend the 2021 meeting to encourage exploration of the role that applied linguistics plays in various fields of study.
