Odysseus – Second language at the workplace (2003)

 

Grünhage-Monetti, M., Halewijn, E. and Holland, C. (2003), Odysseus – Second language at the workplace; Language needs of migrant workers: organising language learning for the vocational/workplace context. Strasbourg: Council of Europe.

Report on the first ECML project to address work-related language learning for adult migrants. The Odysseus project aimed to bring together European specialists to exchange expertise and explore together theoretical, organisational, linguistic and methodological issues so that better second language provision for immigrant and ethnic workers could be developed. It also aimed to trigger a discussion throughout Europe, build a European platform and raise awareness for an issue which had a low profile.

The report includes extensive practical guidance, case studies, a glossary and bibliography.
