Women in Language 2019
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.
And that's why we're back for our second Women in Language conference.
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 30 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 7th March - Sunday 10th March 2019.
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:
- Learning Languages - talks for learners of any level who want to learn effectively with winning strategies and masterful methods
- Living and Working with Languages - tips and shared experiences about international/intercultural love, cultural differences, running a language-based business, volunteering, language jobs and stories of how languages can change your life
- Travel with Languages - stories from the road, travel tips, retreats, and introductions to other countries and their languages
- Language Discoveries - NEW FOR THIS YEAR! Minority or unusual languages, little-known communities and quirky learning techniques that usually don't get center stage
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:
“When's the next event?!”
When you purchase your ticket to Women In Language, here’s what you get:
Full access to all the live presentations - spanning between 10am and 10pm 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 Charity - 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.
