By 2030, nearly one in five members of the workforce will be an immigrant.
How can we ensure that this population, so vital to maintaining a strong competitive US workforce, will gain the English-language skills necessary for job success?
It's no surprise then that Adult ELL is the largest subgroup enrolled in US adult education programs, representing over 40% of the total Adult Ed population (and the figure continues to rise). This diverse group of learners represents many languages spoken, educational levels reached, first language literacy skills acquired, and varying levels of English proficiency.
Increasingly, programs turn to technology to complement classroom instruction, build capacity to match increasing enrollments, and accelerate learners' English-language acquisition.
