In the United States today, more and more people come from somewhere else. Educated or illiterate, looking for a job as an unskilled laborer or hoping to get into graduate school, these newcomers all have one thing in common: they need to learn the English language and to become familiar with American culture and customs. And where do they go to find help? To libraries, which are now finding themselves on the front lines of the English as a Second Language issue. This full-day workshop will help you understand the special needs of adult second language learners. You will discover how to build and organize your ESL collection and successfully reach out to the people who need ESL services.
