Language issues in migration and integration: perspectives from teachers and learners
English
Online resources (website, e-learning platform)
Online resources: This online book is about the role of language in the integration of migrants. It brings together the perspectives of both learners and teachers/policy makers and researchers who have worked in education of migrants. It offers direct statements from learners, migrants who arrived in a new country and face language difficulties. Several of the chapters are based on research projects funded between 2011 and 2014 under the auspices of the ESOL Nexus project: http://esol.britishcouncil.org. In many of the chapters the approach is practical; highlighting ways that teachers can engage more successfully with their learners, fostering a sense of integration within the classroom itself. Other chapters provide a perspective on approaches to language and integration in countries where the national language is not English or where English is only one of the main languages spoken.
