This panel will look at what we can learn from similar experiences of working with new arrivals in various parts of the world. We will look at similar experiences in Europe, focusing particularly on the needs of women (Agnes Kukulska-Hulme); the LINC (Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada) programme in Canada (Lisa Herrera); and the creation of a course materials by the University of Buenos Aires of a programme of Spanish for work (Florencia Genta). Each panelist will provide a brief introduction and overview of their insights and then we will open up discussion for audience questions, or their experiences.

Moderator: Gary Motteram (University of Manchester)

Participants: Florencia Genta (Universidad de Buenos Aires), Lisa Herrera (ISSofBC, Canada), Agnes Kukulska-Hulme (Open University)
