Greek Applied Linguistics Association

The Greek Applied Linguistics Association (GALA) was founded in Thessaloniki in 1980, and is an affiliate of the Association Internationale de Linguistique Appliquée (AILA), founded in 1965.

GALA promotes scientific research carried out within the framework of Applied Linguistics, and encourages cooperation at a national and an international level on issues related to linguistic research, its findings and applications focusing, in particular, on education and civilisation.

GALA has organised several national and international events, among which the AILA World Congress in Halkidiki, Greece in 1990.

GALA publishes annually the Journal of Applied Linguistics (JAL). The main objective of JAL is to present current studies in a variety of topics concerning areas of Applied Linguistics.
