Language acquisition research (published 2004)

The report will provide the Ministry of Education with possible strategies to support schools and teachers who offer bilingual and immersion education, and the children and whanau who participate in these programmes.
This research was commissioned to inform the review of the current ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages) strategy. The report details the outcome of a review of the literature identifying good practice for teaching and learning in the compulsory school sector for Non-English Speaking Background Students (NESB) and describes the results from an investigation of the ways in which schools provide for and meet the language needs of their NESB students.
