Featured Item - Teaching Basic Literacy to ESOL Learners

If you’ve been looking for Teaching Basic Literacy to ESOL learners, it's here.

This important new book from London’s South Bank University, Language and Literacy Unit (LLU+), is sure to arouse much interest among North American adult literacy and ESOL educators.

“A practical guide to teaching learners who have just begun to read and write in English and are not yet familiar with the Latin script.”

With an introduction by Elsa Auerbach of the University of Massachusetts, Boston, the book has chapters on:

  • What is basic literacy and how to approach it?
  • Where do I start?
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Learning styles
  • Materials
  • Dyslexia
  • Assessment
  • Planning
  • Managing Courses, managing classrooms
It also includes a glossary, references and further reading, and an appendix on resources.

“Aimed at both practicing ESOL teachers and trainee teachers, this book integrates theory with lots of practical suggestions for teaching.”

LLU+ is a professional development centre, which runs courses for ESOL and literacy teachers, including one on teaching basic literacy to ESOL Learners.

We are pleased to be able to offer this book in North America. It continues the quality and relevance of titles from the LLU+ (previously London Language and Literacy Unit), which we have carried and for which there has always been a strong demand.

Some teacher comments:

"A long awaited and invaluable book. It untangles so many knots, introduces theory and proposes solutions and all in accessible, and almost jargon free language."

“It is helpful to discuss the theory behind various models and approaches, including the ‘health warnings’, and then to provide clear examples and suggestions of good practice."
