The Mechanics of English Language Learning
Held October 21, 2010
This is part 2 of a 3-part series on language access.
English Language Learners (ELL) make up a large percentage of the total number of adult learners in classrooms around the United States. These learners face unique challenges in their educational pursuits. This Webinar will explain how the adult brain learns, what challenges an ELL faces inside and outside of the classroom, and how a program might overcome these obstacles. Program Representatives will present their own experiences in offering an ESL program in their community and share what they have learned in the process. Presenters: Dr. Patricia Maloof and Leya Speasmaker, both of CLINIC.
