by Centre for Multicultural Youth Issues.

Publisher: Carlton, Vic. Centre for Multicultural Youth Issues 2004Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2004 Includes references and appendicesSummary: English as a Second Language (ESL) programs for new arrivals have a crucial role to play in providing young refugees with the necessary English skills to be able to make a successful transition into mainstream education and employment. The central role that English proficiency plays in determining the successful integration of migrants into Australian society is well demonstrated in this and other research. Due to the pivotal importance that initial intensive language learning experiences are likely to play in the settlement trajectory of newly arrived young people, the central focus of this research has been an analysis of the ESL New Arrivals Program (ESL NAP) in the City of Greater Dandenong. In particular, this research explored whether or not the ESL NAP was equipping young people with the necessary skills to make a successful transition into mainstream education and employment through interviewing service providers who work with young refugees and by interviewing some young refugees themselves.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
