On behalf of LET, Japan, I really appreciate that IALLT and LET can hold a FLEAT VII August 6th -9th, this year, 2019, at Waseda University in Tokyo. Since FLEAT I in 1981 in Tokyo, we, IALLT and LET, have hosted FLEAT six times both in Japan and North America.
For these years, the landscapes of language teaching and learning have changed and improved, in particular, in the area of educational technology to which IALLT and LET have contributed a lot. I believe that this trend will continue for a long time in the future, and I hope that we can exchange a lot of academic and practical achievements at many opportunities, such as these conferences.
We are proud that we have created such a great relationship between IALLT and LET during this period.
I hope that many researchers and practitioners of language teaching and learning from all around the world will participate in this FLEAT VII and will have a memorable time.
Last, but not the least, I must also sincerely thank the Kanto Chapter of LET for their great job in making FLEAT VII successful.
