Abstract

This chapter introduces EU-Speak, an Erasmus+ funded three-phase project that created and delivered six online modules in five languages to address the insufficiency of teacher training and continued professional development for those who work with adult migrants with little or no home language literacy. Registration data and questionnaire responses indicate that the idea of supra-national, multi-lingual provision was both feasible and attractive and open-ended questions point to an impact on participants’ teaching. The EU-Speak modules are now published as a volume in the five languages and can be accessed for free on our website.
