Dear colleagues:

I wanted to let you know about a new research report entitled "Formal,
non-formal and informal learning: The case of literacy, essential
skills, and language learning in Canada". It examines the literacy and
essential skills, as well as the learning of second and other
languages in Canada in terms of formal, non-formal and informal
learning. It then discusses the emergence of asset-based frameworks
that are being used in both literacy and language learning in Canada,
including applications of the Common European Framework of Reference
for Language.

The report is now available in .pdf format through these websites:

European Association for the Education of Adults
http://www.eaea.org/news.php?aid=17397&k=2088&%20d=2010-02

and

Centre for Adult English Language Acquisition (CAELA) database
(Reference ID#274)
http://www.cal.org/CALWebDB/ESLResourceDB/

The executive summary may be found here:
