The conference, organized by the Research Group in Language Teaching (GIEL), focused on the role of grammar in the teaching of languages (first, second or foreign) in the different stages of education, from different approaches (with reflection on language, attention to form, metalinguistic activity and writing, linguistic theories and teaching of grammar, beliefs of teachers and students, diachronic perspective on the role of grammar in language teaching, pedagogical grammar and school curriculum). The research considered both epistemological and methodological issues as well as practical aspects.
After the positive results of the first congress, it was decided that the general theme and the sections of free communications would be maintained. However, in this edition, symposiums organized by research groups that revolve around the theme of the congress were also accepted. Likewise, a workshop was conducted by Ignacio Bosque (Royal Spanish Academy) and a round table on cognitive grammar and teaching took place, coordinated by Llorenç Comajoan (University of Vic-Central University of Catalonia).
