The existence of Indonesian, local languages, and foreign languages is essentially in the interests of dignity, identity, character, and national culture. As a pluralistic nation, the Indonesian nation has a very diverse of language and

 cultural capital. More than 700 languages live in this country. The local languages become a den of local culture, ethnic unity, and ethnic identity. Nevertheless, the existence of local languages is very alarming so that efforts are needed to maintain its existance; one of them is through language learning and academic discussion. Based on the reasons, this international seminar aims to bring together leading academic scholars, researchers, and practitioners to present their research and share their experience on all aspects of language, literature, culture, and education
