The Center for Adult English Language Acquisition would like to announce
two new resources for helping adult English language learners acquire
language skills for the workforce:

The first is a brief, written by Miriam Burt and Julie Mathews-Aydinli.
This brief reviews the three venues in which federally funded
instruction to help immigrants become successful at work is offered - at
the workplace, in vocational classes, and in adult English as a second
language (ESL) classes. The brief can be found at
http://www.cal.org/caela/esl_resources/briefs/work.html
<http://www.cal.org/caela/esl_resources/briefs/work.html>

The second is CAELA FAQ#20 which gives more information on factors to
consider when planning for, setting up, and evaluating a workplace
program for immigrant workers. This can be found at
