You are invited to submit your abstract and manuscript for review for this Special Issue of the Education Sciences journal. Currently, under the influence of social, cultural, political, and economic changes, language education is undergoing a number of changes and facing a new set of challenges. These changes and challenges have had a significant impact on the entire process of language teaching and learning, which is reflected in the introduction of new and innovative methods and tools for language teaching, the emphasis on personalized learning, the stimulation of informal learning, and the awareness of the cultural and age diversity of language learners. The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together experts in the field of language education and generate articles that reflect the key challenges that language education currently faces.
