LESLLA: Low Educated Second Language and Literacy Acquisition Low Educated Second Language and Literacy Acquisition (LESLLA) for Adults is an international forum of researchers, teacher educators, and practitioners who share an interest in research on the development of second language skills by adult immigrants with little or no schooling prior to entering their new countries.
The goal of the LESLLA is to share empirical research and information to help inform and guide further research on second language acquisition for the low-educated adult population. This research in turn will provide guidance to education policy development, curriculum development, and teaching practices in all those countries in which immigrants settle and most need educational support.
