Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition 

Meeting Description: 

LESLLA is an international forum of researchers who share an interest in 
research into the development of second language skills by adult immigrants and 
refugees with little or no schooling in the home country, low levels of 
literacy in the native language, and limited proficiency in the language of the 
new country.

LESLLA's goal is to share empirical research and information that will guide 
further studies on second language acquisition for the adult immigrant 
population with limited formal education. This research, in turn, is meant to 
influence educational policy development in all those countries where 
immigrants settle and are likely to need educational support.
