VESL for Victory and Independence (2007)

Sticht looks at how the U.S. Army taught English language instruction and vocational training concurrently to immigrants during World Wars I and II, and how similar training continues today.

"Today, many programs for those learning the English language follow a similar approach to that of the Army in World Wars I and II and embed or integrate the teaching of English within the functional context of vocational training. These VESL (Vocational English as a Second Language) programs continue to help thousands of non-English speaking immigrants achieve social and economic freedom and independence in their newly chosen homeland."
