Migration & Language Education

Editor-in-Chief: Sang Hwan Seong
First Published: April 2020
Frequency: One issue per year
ISSN: 2652-5984 (Online)

Aims and Scope:

Migration & Language Education is an innovative open access journal devoted to the research intersecting two different dimensions, namely migration and language education. When a person migrates, it is particularly difficult to adapt to a host country unless s/he already has acquired its language(s). At the same time, the migrants’ linguistic assets have intrinsic relationships with the identities and communication cultures of the migrants and their families. Thus, migration is naturally associated with various aspects of language education. This journal invites new and creative manuscripts that can discuss languages, language acquisition, identity problems, language policy, and social integration that are triggered by migration.
