    The Council of Europe is organising a launching conference in Strasbourg on Thursday 30th June to present the Reference Guide Literacy And Second Language for the Linguistic Integration of Adult Migrants – LASLLIAM.

    The Reference Guide was intended to contribute to enhancing language-learning opportunities for non- and low-literate adult migrants by supporting their language educators in designing, implementing, evaluating and improving curricula and teaching materials tailored toward the specific needs of the learners.

    The ALTE LAMI SIG coordinator and member of the authoring group, Lorenzo Rocca, will present the tool in Strasbourg, Dr Nick Saville, ALTE Secretary-General, will take part at the final round table of the conference.

    The event is free and has been organised in a hybrid format (in person and online attendance available). For more information about the programme of the event, and to register, please see link below:
