Research, Practice, and Policy for Low-educated Second Language and Literacy Acquisition – for Adults (LESLLA)
Low Educated Second Language and Literacy Acquisition (LESLLA) for Adults is an international forum of researchers who share an interest in research into the development of second language skills by adult immigrants and refugees with little or no schooling in the home country, low levels of literacy in the native language, and limited proficiency in the language of the new country.
LESLLA’s goal is to share empirical research and information that will guide further studies on second language acquisition for the adult immigrant population with limited formal education. This research, in turn, is meant to influence educational policy development in all those countries where immigrants settle and are likely to need educational support.
The 8th annual LESLLA conference will be hosted by the Jyväskylä University Language Campus.
