Abstract

A conference organised by the Slovene Association of LSP teachers was held on February 5–6, 2010 in Ljubljana. Among the topics discussed were crosscultural communication, materials design, blended foreign language teaching/learning, the Bologna reforms and their consequences to mention but a few. Teaching English for specific purposes in Slovenian tertiary education faces a very uncertain future, despite the fact that almost everyone involved in teaching/learning foreign languages propagates the belief that languages play an important role in modern societies. While the EU’s language policy promotes multilingualism and aims for a situation in which every eu citizen can speak at least two foreign languages in addition to their mother tongue, the majority of seasoned Slovenian language teachers ring alarm bells about the dire consequences of the present Slovenian language policy.
