Complex, boundary crossing
Work-related L2 learning is complex and boundary crossing – this field encompasses work, migration, intercultural communication, social policy, learning, language, literacy, linguistics, labour market, people management…and more.
It occurs in a range of contexts, including
- Pre-employment L2 learning for immigrants, also emigrants
- L2 learning in vocational schools
- Work-related learning in integration courses
- L2 learning for specific occupational areas, qualifications
- Workplace L2 learning
Work-related language learning is multi-dimensional, many faceted – but its various strands are strongly connected.
