Women in Language 2018
Women in Language is a unique online event designed to champion, celebrate and amplify the voices of women in language learning
You love languages.
You want to learn more about how to study, how to work, and how to live with languages. And you love nothing more than to connect with others and discuss your passion for languages with experts from all around the world. So do we.
You may have noticed that the majority of the well-known polyglots online are male, and that expert panels and line-ups can be dominated by these voices. The media in particular pays more attention to male experts, even though statistically our field is full of females too.
We were inspired by many of the current polyglot events and wanted to contribute to the conversation so we decided to do things a little differently.
New voices. Fresh perspectives. And a conference like nothing you've seen before.
Introducing Women in Language
Imagine meeting an inspiring crowd of language learning experts from the comfort of your seat. Add to that an incredible line-up of expert speakers from all walks of language life: polyglots, industry veterans, full-time world travelers, teaching experts, academic professors, and innovators.
Oh, and the fact that we're all women? Heck yes!
For the first time, we're putting more than 25 female speakers in the spotlight.
Women In Language is a unique online event designed to champion, celebrate, and amplify the voices of women in language learning.
It’s a brand new event happening for the first time Thursday 8th March - Sunday 11th March 2018.
Oh, and you’re gonna love it.
Get started now!
Women In Language is curated to inspire and empower everyone who loves language.
But, as you’ve probably noticed from the title of the event, there’s a difference: all the speakers are women.
We’ve gathered an awesome lineup of women to talk about four key aspects of language spanning the four day event:
- Starting Languages - perfect if you’re just in the early stages and need a leg up to learn languages better on your own
- Mastering Languages - exactly what you need if you’ve already studied a couple of languages or one to a reasonable level and you’re ready to take things further
- Living with Languages - a great range of presentations about language in your everyday life. From positive language learning for kids to living abroad
- Working with Languages - curious about the various ways you can bring languages into your working life? There’s plenty here for you too
So whether you’re a man, a woman, or otherwise, a beginner or an experienced language learner, and however language fits into your life...
This event will leave you inspired and asking:
“Is it next year already?!”
When you purchase your ticket to Women In Language, here’s what you get:
Full access to all the live presentations - spanning between 11am and 9pm GMT, 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 the 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 Kiva - Kiva is a charity that supports 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.

Women in Language is an online event that brings together women in language-related fields to discuss and share their experiences as language learners, educators, professionals and enthusiasts.
March 8-11, 2018
There are over 25 polyglot speakers, these people know how to learn languages, each and every one of them, and they are sharing their strategies and motivating stories. We also cover techniques for people who love learning languages but aren't always sure what to do. In the Mastery track, you will learn advanced language learning techniques and approaches that can revive language learning when that motivation is fizzling out.
