 Our aim is to bring together university and K-12 teachers of Italian and Spanish to encourage novel exchanges about current L2 research, methodologies, and experiments that attempt to transcend traditional boundaries to develop students’ translingual, intercultural, and critical competencies. The conference will be a forum for educators to establish a dialogue that will address the difficulties posed to language education in an age of international information technologies and wavering markets. It will seek to highlight the innovative strides made to address these varying concerns while demonstrating effective classroom techniques for the students of today.
