Vom 7. bis 8. März 2024 findet die Internationale Konferenz „LICO — Listening Comprehension“ an der Universität Münster statt.
In an increasingly digital world that is overflowing with texts to be heard, the importance of interactive and transactional listening comprehension in the foreign language classroom becomes more and more apparent. The importance of interactive and transactional listening comprehension in the foreign language classroom, however, is not equally represented in research in foreign language education. To foster research in this specific field, the international Listening Comprehension (LiCo) conference invites researchers to present and discuss current research, find synergies for future projects, and develop an outlook for future research, theory and practice. We welcome presentations which focus on how listening is learned, how it can be taught, as well as how it can be assessed and tested. The LiCo conference aims at establishing contact between likeminded researchers to network and explore opportunities for future cooperation.
