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.

You want to learn more about how to learn, how to live in and work in languages, and hear inspiring stories about other language learners and communities across the globe. And you want to connect with others who share your love of languages.

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.

You may have noticed that the majority of the well-known polyglots online are male, that expert panels and line-ups can be dominated by these voices. The media in particular pays more attention to male experts, even though the language field is full of females, too.

That's why we do things a little differently, introducing...

New voices. Fresh perspectives. And a conference like nothing you've seen before.
Welcome to Women in Language
Live from 17 to 20 September 2020

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!

Women In Language is curated to inspire and empower everyone who loves language.
While all the speakers are women, we invite everyone and anyone to join us.
For this year's event we gathered an incredible lineup of speakers to talk about four key aspects of language spanning the four day event:

  • 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
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 motivated and asking:
“When's the next event?!”
