Video: Supporting Adult Language Learners in Immigrant Communities


How can VTS be used to empower adult immigrants who are learning a new language? CALTA21 had the honor of being invited to the VTS Online Summer Series to share approaches used in the design and implementation of our model. Listen to panelists Patricia Lannes of CALTA21 (U.S.) and Bianca Hollenkamp of Nova College (Netherlands) discuss how they use VTS to provide a context to strengthen language skills while honoring the diversity of life experience, background knowledge, and rich cultures in their communities.


Student testimonials can attest to the effectiveness of this pedagogy. Click here to watch some of our students verbalize the impact of CALTA21 and VTS.
