Women in Language 2020
Join us for Women in Language, an online event created to champion, celebrate and amplify the voices of women in language learning.
Passionate about languages?
We are too, and that's why we're back hosting our third Women in Language conference.
We do too.
Our current global situation has put more distance between us than before, and Women in Language is an event where you can connect, find inspiration, and learn.
Now more than ever, it's important for more voices to be heard.
That's why we do things a little differently, introducing...
Meet a collaborative and supportive team of language learners without leaving the comfort of your couch at home. Enjoy four action-packed days of panels, language practice sessions, and talks from an inspiring line-up of expert speakers with diverse backgrounds: polyglots, industry veterans, full-time world travelers, teaching experts, academic professors, and innovators.
Not to mention--every speaker and panelist at this event is female or non-binary. Heck yes!
This year, we're putting 30+ female and non-binary speakers in the spotlight.
Women In Language is a unique online event designed to champion, celebrate, and amplify the lesser heard voices in language learning.
The event this year is happening Thursday 17th September - Sunday 20th September 2020.
Oh, and you’re gonna love it.
Get started now!
- All the Feels - inspirational case studies and languages stories from language learners and researchers
- Living and Working - tips and shared experiences about living and working in another language
- Mastery - talks for learners of any level who want to learn effectively with winning strategies and masterful methods
- Dream Team - panels with a team of experts sharing alternative language learning strategies
What do you get when you sign up for Women in Language?
When you purchase your ticket to Women In Language, here’s what you get:
Full access to all the live presentations - spanning between 8am and 9pm BST, there’s a talk for every timezone from Australia to the Pacific coast of the USA!
Recordings of all presentations - we know you’re busy. That’s why we’re giving you full recordings of all the presentations so you can catch up on what you missed after the four days.
Exclusive access to our secret Facebook Group - we’ll be going live, answering your questions, and you can connect with other language learners until 6 weeks after the event.
Digital Notebook - if you’re a notetaker, this is for you. Your Women In Language Digital Notebook allows you to make notes right on the PDF Notebook on your computer. Or if you prefer, go traditional and print it off!
10% of all proceeds go to Girl Up - We're donating 10% of all profits to a charity that supports women, education, and budding entrepreneurs across the globe. It’s important to us that Women In Language supports the global community. And it makes you feel good too.
