A Selected, Annotated Bibliography of Materials for Teaching English to Indochinese Refugee Adults. Adult Education Series No. 2. Indochinese Refugee Education Guides.
Center for Applied Linguistics, Arlington, VA.
This bibliography is designed to provide Americans who are working with Indochinese refugee adults with an idea of what materials are commercially available in the field of teaching English as a second language. Materials were chosen because they have been successfully used with Indochinese refugees over the last three years, or because they have been identified as needed. The focus is on the needs of the adult refugee who is planning employment or vocational training. The annotations refer to materials as being on the beginning, intermediate, or advanced level; this scale refers to ability to speak English and is not the same as level of education. The bibliography includes English as a second language (ESL) texts with emphases on course texts, pronunciation and fluency, readers, writing texts, vocabulary and idioms, grammar practice, ESL tests, and student references. Supplementary materials listed include ESL in specific vocational areas, employment skills, and survival skills. Teacher aids and information on the languages and cultures of the refugees are also covered. (SW)
