This paper follows on from the detailed research into multilingualism: Language Rich Europe: Trends in Policies and Practices for Multilingualism in Europe.
The British Council is very pleased to introduce the ‘Innovations in…’ series. This collection aims to bring to the reader a wealth of ideas and practices in English language teaching, and to stimulate new thinking and experimentation. The focus of this particular volume is on English language teaching for migrants and refugees.
For this report a sample of refugees living in London was surveyed on aspects such as housing, health, English language skills and community development and participation.
Policy & Research
The aim of this research and policy section is to make information available on migrants and refugees who have come to settle in the UK, and the provision that exists to help them learn the English language. The section contains studies and documents relating to aspects such as individual community groups; national trends on migration; policy on provision; inspection and funding. In addition to local and national information, the section also contains details of international studies from countries such as Canada, USA and Australia which can be expected to be relevant to the UK context.
