Description

This book looks at adult learners of English from several perspectives, and puts this unique group of learners into the larger language-learning context, beginning with a discussion of the situation of multilingualism and language learning in the U.S. and in international communities. It then builds a background for understanding the adult English as a Second Language (ESL) learner.
