BAAL is a professional association, based in the UK, which provides a forum for people interested in language and applied linguistics. We have an international professional membership of around 1000 members.

BAAL organises scientific meetings, and publishes a newsletter and conference proceedings. We support applied linguistic activity via fundingspecial interest groups and an annual book prize. We bring together the applied linguistics community via BAALmail, our dedicated webmail list, through which members share and discuss applied linguistics-related news, achievements and opportunities. We forge and maintain close links to institutions and organisations with a vested interest in applied linguistics. We also send representatives to national and international meetings of interest to our members.

 BAAL is affiliated to AILA, the International Association of Applied Linguistics.
