Hispanic Adults and ESL Programs: Barriers to Participation.
Hayes, Elisabeth
TESOL Quarterly, v23 n1 p47-63 Mar 1989
Analysis of data collected from 200 Hispanic adults enrolled in large urban English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) programs identified four factors that serve as a basis for a tentative typology of low-literacy Hispanic adults' participation in ESL programs, including: (1) self/school incongruence; (2) low self-confidence; (3) lack of access to classes; and (4) situational constraints.
