Introduction to Issues and Implications for Children Learning to Read in Multilingual Settings

This report, commissioned through the Education Resource Facility - an initiative funded by AusAID, provides a review of the literature on the most current research and practices surrounding learning to read in a second langauge (L2) and learning through the medium of an L2.

Through identifying specific challenges to learning in a multilingual context, the paper also provides strategies for encouraging successful literacy outcomes in children in such contexts. 
The paper is divided into four sections:
1. Effective practices in MLE
2. Review of the literature on teaching practices
3. The role of texts in literacy education

4. Assessing literacy outcomes
