Association of Applied Linguistics, ASAL, is a national association established to promote studies and provisions in foreign language teaching and learning. It was founded by academicians across Turkey, and it serves the community of applied linguistics in various ways. ASAL primarily focuses on the scholarly journal of the association, the Journal of Language Teaching and Learning (jltl.org), as well as congresses that unite the national and wider academia of applied linguistics and foreign language teaching to share knowledge and expertise.

ASAL is a recent affiliate of the International Association of Applied Linguistics (aila.info) and aims at promoting the mutual cooperation to help both local and international academicians, researchers and decision-makers with AILA and other local associations across the world.
