9780415733601: Adult Language Education and Migration: Challenging agendas in policy and practice

Adult Language Education and Migration: Challenging Agendas in Policy and Practice provides a lively and critical examination of policy and practice in language education for adult migrants around the world, showing how opportunities for learning the language of a new country both shape and are shaped by policy moves. Language policies for migrants are often controversial and hotly contested, but at the same time innovative teaching practices are emerging in response to the language learning needs of today’s mobile populations.

This book:

  • analyses and challenges language education policies relating to adult migrants in nine countries;
  • provides a comparative study with separate chapters on policy and practice in each country;
  • focuses on Australia, Canada, Spain (Catalonia), Finland, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, the UK and the US.

Adult Language Education and Migration is essential reading for practitioners, students and researchers working in the area of language education in migration contexts.

About the Author:

James Simpson is a senior lecturer in language education at the School of Education, University of Leeds, UK.

Anne Whiteside is a lecturer in a Masters in TESOL program at San Francisco State University.

Review:

"Language education for migrants is of critical importance for the promotion of individual life chances and community development. The eighteen substantive chapters in this volume, together with the thoughtful Introduction and Afterword, provide expert accounts of policy dispositions and realities on the ground. This book is a must for anyone interested in language education, language policy and social integration."
Constant Leung, King’s College London, UK

 

"Adult Language Education and Migration brings together an unprecedented collection of chapters from nine different countries with very unique political and policy backdrops. Readers will find wisdom, optimism, innovation, complexity, and a fresh critical eye among the chapters of this book. Simpson and Whiteside have given us a must-read for educators and researchers working in the dynamic and politically shifting spaces in which adult language learning and migration intersect."
Martha Bigelow, University of Minnesota, USA
