It is a biennial International Conference on English across Culture for researchers, practitioners, teachers, and students to share ideas and experiences on English language teaching and linguistic challenges in a cross-cultural context and to discuss some direction to embrace the challenges.
The popularity of English has inspired innovations in efforts to improve proficiencies in the language and understanding to the culture of the native speakers.
