Silje-Jennifer McDonald Bygland & Astrid Stotesbury: Language learning

 

The talk will show how they practice at Karmøy adult education centre. The focus is on collecting language they find in the workplace and use it in the classroom. This so the students feel that the two are connected and the language learning has relevance and is meaningful.
