The Centre for Canadian Language Benchmarks (CCLB) is pleased to announce the publication of Canadian Language Benchmarks: ESL for Adult Literacy Learners (ALL). It is a comprehensive document to support program administrators, curriculum developers and teachers in the instruction of English as a Second Language (ESL) to adult learners with limited or no literacy skills — as well as ESL learners who are literate in a non-Roman alphabet. The development of the document was funded by the Government of Manitoba and Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
CCLB is currently seeking project funding to trans-adapt the document into French.
