We are delighted to invite you to the Language for Specific Purposes: Trends and
Perspectives International Conference to be held on 17-18 September 2021 in Budva,
Montenegro. The conference is organized within the Erasmus+ ReFLAME (Reforming Foreign
Langugaes in Academia) which is coordinated by the Faculty of Philology (University of
Montenegro) in partnership with the University of Donja Gorica, and Mediterranean
University from the Montenegrin side and the University for Foreigners of Perugia, University
of Warsaw and University of Zagreb from the EU side.
The conference aims to provide an international forum for sharing experience, knowledge
and results in theory, methodology and practice of teaching languges for specific purposes
(LSP). LSP is understood as an approach to language teaching that targets the current and/or
future academic or occupational needs of learners, focuses on the necessary language, genres
and skills to address these needs, and assists learners in meeting these needs through the use
of general and/or discipline specific teaching materials and methods (Anthony, 2018: 10-11).
The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers of different strands and
practitioners to focus on understanding modern LSP concepts and approaches establishing
the links with the needs of both the academia and the labor market.
