The LLL SIG Newsletter

Volume 14, Issue 1 [May, 2018]


A growing number of adults of all ages are engaged in second language study. The Lifelong Language Learning Special Interest Group (LLL SIG) invites those teaching languages to young, middle-aged, and older adults to share information through our website and newsletter, at various SIG conferences and events, and at the JALT National Conference.
