Twenty five percent of students in NSW come from bilingual/ bicultural backgrounds and many need support in the development of English. This unit gives a background in teaching English to young people and adults. It explores the diversity of learners: refugee, migrant and international students; and covers issues in language development, teaching and learning. The focus is on building skills and understandings in teaching spoken language and reading. There is also a focus on building participants' own understanding of the systems of English.
