Face to Face: Learning English. LIRS Manual for Sponsors of Refugees.
This manual was designed for refugee sponsors who are teaching English to Southeast Asian refugees. The manual encourages sponsors to research English as a Second Language (ESL) resources in their communities, to teach ESL in a professional and educationally sound manner, and to evaluate their work on a reuular basis. The first section of the manual emphasizes that learning English is important for all members of refugee families. The materials section describes the preparations that need to be made before the refugees arrive, ways to find local ESL classes and to organize tutoring projects, and suggests materials for beginning and ongoing ESL tutoring. The next section describes the first few weeks of refugees' lives and outlines lessons that are appropriate for that time. The concluding section discusses the ongoing language support refugees need.
