The jointly held TeLLT and CoLLT 2021 conferences aim to bring together academics from around the world to report on their various research work related to technology-enhanced language learning and teaching (TeLLT), and corpus-based language learning and teaching (CoLLT). As TeLLT and CoLLT are gaining momentum in this digitized world, we hope that through the two jointly held conferences we can promote Hong Kong as a hub for academic exchanges and collaborations in the area of technology-enhanced language learning and teaching, and corpus-based language learning and teaching. We welcome scholars to report their studies on technology-enhanced (including corpus-based) learning and teaching of English, Putonghua, Cantonese, and other modern languages.
