Linkages: Connecting Literacy and English as a Second Language (2007)

Discussion Paper: What do we know about the Connections between Literacy and English as a Second Language in Canada?

This discussion paper highlights and summarizes current Canadian research over the last five to seven years on connections between literacy and English as a Second Language in terms of key themes, issues, gaps and needed strategies. The paper also reflects the perspectives of a small number of key informants from the literacy, English as a Second Language, and settlement fields on key themes. This discussion paper is part of a larger Movement for Canadian Literacy (MCL) project entitled Linkages: Connecting Literacy and English as a Second Language .

The goal of the overall project is for MCL to work with national organizations that support the ESL/settlement and literacy fields to identify common issues and concerns and to document areas for mutual cooperation in the future. MLC is interested in the connections between literacy and English as a Second Language because of the incidence of low literacy for immigrants as indicated by the International Adult Literacy and Skills Survey.
