Adult Language Education and Migration: Challenging agendas in policy and practice
James Simpson and Anne Whiteside (Eds.)

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. 

The language needs of new migrants often outpace the development of infrastructure that addresses them, and language policies for migrants are often controversial and hotly contested. At the same time, innovative teaching practices are emerging in response to the language learning needs of today’s migrants. 

Painting a complex portrait of language learning for mobile populations in a diverse world, this book shows how opportunities for learning the powerful languages of a new country both shape and are shaped by policy moves. 

The 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. 

The book is essential reading for practitioners, advanced students and researchers working in the area of language education in migration contexts 

Maria Rosa Garrido and Xavier Oliva have co-authored a practice chapter  about a collaborative project to teach basic Catalan in Catalonia.  More info: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415733601/
