Learning Together: A Guide to Community-Based Adult ESL & Literacy in British Columbia (2009)

The guide’s purpose is to support practitioners working in community programs for English as a Second Language (ESL) learners. The underlying premise is that those learners may represent a wide range of literacy levels.

The authors begin by asking who is an ESL learner and discussing the variety of challenges such a learner may face. From there, they go on to discuss the principles and aspects of ESL adult education, touching on family literacy; working with refugees; seniors’ literacy; and the crucial role of volunteers in community-based ESL programs.

The authors have included sections on benchmarks and surveys; immigration services and information; and resources for researchers and practitioners.
