This phonics program was developed to serve students with diverse educational backgrounds, with a specific focus on refugees. One of the challenges in working with refugees is that, unlike international students, they come to English classes with huge variation in educational experience. Some students may have finished high school or have a college degree, while others may not have ever picked up a pencil before. The goal of this program is to provide a bridge for those students with limited literacy skills so that they are able to move on to a more traditional beginning ESL class. There are a number of assumptions about academic skills made in most English language classrooms, even at a beginning level. As a result, teachers and students alike become frustrated when those expectations are confounded.

This site hosts two beginner adult ESL courses offered by Grossmont Community College: ESL 078 (with focus on listening fluency) and ESL 078R (with focus on reading proficiency). Each container offers materials for the first 2-4 (or more) weeks of the courses. The timing depends on the pace of a low-beginner class. Some classes may go faster and take 2 weeks, and some may need to go slower and may take up to 4 weeks.
The units that are offered are mostly for the instructor of the courses. This is because the teacher must lead the course with aural and verbal comprehension checks. At this level, students have very limited ability to communicate in any meaningful way, so the materials provide guidance to the teacher leading these courses.
The materials include videos, slideshows, vocabulary sheets, readings (such as original stories), teacher scripts, and simple assessments.
The materials are based on the principles that underlie contemporary language teaching in the area of Second Language Acquisition. The proficiency based approaches that have been used to create these materials are CI (comprehensible Input) and TPRS (Teaching Proficiency Through Reading and Story-Telling).
There is great need to understand individuals' functional language abilities, not only in education but in commerce and public policy discussion. The aim is to quantify language use patterns, proficiency, and dominance in the two languages of bilinguals. The Bilingual Language Profile (BLP) is an instrument for assessing language dominance through self-reports that is concise, quick, and easy to use. The BLP is intended to produce a continuous dominance score and a general bilingual profile taking into account a variety of linguistic variables. The BLP is an open and free assessment tool for researchers, educators, and anyone with an interest in assessing language dominance.
