Alfred, Mary V.
Adult Education Quarterly, v53 n4 p242-60 Aug 2003
A study framed by sociocultural theory involved 15 British Caribbean women immigrants in the United States. Home country culture and early schooling involved learning experiences in the host country. They faced challenges in negotiating language and identity. Length of time in the new culture, level of social support, and sociocultural environment influenced learning. (Contains 42 references.)
