This is a preliminary version of a listing of meetings on the teaching of languages. It includes meetings known by the terms congress, conference, and symposium, with special emphasis on international meetings. The work is divided into five chapters: (1) the origin and development of conferences on the teaching of languages; (2) a chronological listing of the meetings; (3) an index of the acronyms of the organizations, a selected bibliography of the proceedings, and an index to the titles of the proceedings; (4) an alphabetical list of the locations of the meetings; and (5) a selection of texts of the recommendations and conclusions of meetings dating from 1928 to 1976. In these texts, the following topics are treated: bilingualism and education, the teaching of foreign languages in elementary school, the future of higher education in Africa, language teaching methodology, retraining language teachers, the description and measurement of bilingualism, international education, educational anthropology and sociolinguistics, educational policy, linguistic and cultural diversity, educational policy and language minorities, bilingual education, and education in the native language.
