Language Reports


The Southeast Asian language teaching community in the United States has organized itself into a number of organizations to support this work.  In each issue of JSEALT, we plan on presenting reports and information from some of these groups.  This issue includes the 2008 Conference on Southeast Asian Language Teaching and Applied Linguistics Program which was held at the University of Wisconsin and the COTSEAL 2009 Conference Call for Papers and Presentations.
