Do ESOL learners benefit from engagement with museums?
Useful seminar, by the British Council, for ESOL teachers - focusing on the benefits of museums as part of the learning experience.
This seminar focuses on the results of the presenter’s MA dissertation, which tested the hypothesis that visits to museums do benefit ESOL learners. The results show that trips to museums are about improving the life skills of the learners as well as their language skills. They embolden the learners to step outside the confines of their communities and neighbourhoods to explore London and its museums, as well as improving relationships with each other and their families.
