The migrant population has been facing, for many years now, a lack of autonomy in daily life (shops, transport, administration…) due to a low linguistic level, often increased by a family and work environment from the same geographical community.
To overcome this issue, A.S.L.C. has implemented, for more than 20 years, French classes for migrants aiming for linguistic and civic autonomy. Furthermore, a specific program, starting from alphabetization level, has been developed for Chinese-speaking migrants.
The priority for this public is to forge a strong grounding in pronunciation, comprehension and everyday life communication. On top of that, they need to improve their “know-how-to-learn” skills. Indeed, for people who often have a little formal education in their own maternal language, it is all the more essential to build with them adapted learning strategies.
Adults with little or no formal education, or with a mother tongue very different from French
