14th Annual Symposium LESLLA (Literacy Education and Second Language Learning for Adults) "People, languages and literacy in new migration. Research, Practice, and Policy"

Gepost door Egle Mocciaro 2 jaar 9 maanden geleden

donderdag 4 oktober 2018 tot zaterdag 6 oktober 2018

Literacy Education and Second Language Learning for Adults (LESLLA) is an international forum of scholars who share an interest in research on the development of second language skills by adult immigrants with little or no schooling prior to entering the country of entry. The goal of LESLLA is to share empirical research and information to help, inform and guide further research on second language acquisition for the low-educated adult population. This research in turn will provide guidance to education policy development in all those countries in which immigrants settle and most need educational support.

Confirmed invited speakers:

Jean-Claude Beacco (Université Sorbonne nouvelle Paris 3)
Theo Marinis (University of Reading)
Martha Young-Scholten (Newcastle University)
Massimiliano Spotti (Tilburg University)
