"'Enhancing Literacy' examines the characteristics and needs of learners from languages other than English (LOTE) backgrounds. In particular it considers those learners in ESL literacy or ALBE classes with high oracy and low levels in reading and writing English, many of who will have had limited education, and many of who are long term residents of Australia. "It also presents an 8 stage Adult Basic Education Teaching-Learning Cycle which combines a genre-based approach with the principles of adult learning. This is done in the context of the Reading and Writing and Oral Communication Streams of the CGE for Adults. This Teaching -Learning Cycle, and the related ideas and teaching activities are applicable for adult ESB and LOTE learners. However, the cultural background and language needs of the LOTE learners are highlighted. The publication also suggests strategies for creating a supportive learning environment which meets the literacy and language needs of LOTE background learners while encouraging and challenging them."
