Beginning To Work with Adult English Language Learners: Some Considerations. ERIC Q & A


This paper discusses what teachers who are beginning to work with adult English language learners need to know. Recommendations in four areas are discussed: applications of adult learning in English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) contexts; second language acquisition; culture and working with multicultural groups; and instructional approaches that support language development in adults. It is not intended to be comprehensive. Rather, it provides a summary for teachers and is an overview of important points. The paper suggests basic strategies to use, and provides resources to consult for further information. (KFT)
