New ISBN publication - Reference Guide Literacy and Second Language for the Linguistic Integration of Adult Migrants (LASLLIAM)

This reference guide is meant for language educators, curriculum designers and

language policy makers in their endeavour to design, implement, evaluate and

improve curricula tailored toward the specific needs of non- and low-literate adult

migrants. This group of migrants faces the complex and demanding task of learning

a language while either learning to read and write for the first time or developing

their literacy skills. They rarely receive adequate instruction in terms of hours of

tuition and targeted teaching approaches, whereas they are very often requested

to take a compulsory written test.

The reference guide contains: a definition of target users and learners; the rationale

related to the development of the descriptors; principles for teaching literacy and

second languages; scales and tables of descriptors; aspects of curriculum design at

the macro, meso and micro levels and recommendations on assessment procedures

and tools within the learning environment.

The guide also contains descriptors that build on the Common European Framework

of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and the CEFR Companion volume up to the A1

level for adult migrants, with special attention given to literacy learners.
