Literature from Ong (1982) and Croydon, A. (2005) Making It Real: Teaching Pre-literate Adult Refugee Students. Tacoma Project in the United States was reviewed.
Strategies for working with limited literacy learners included scaffolding, varying tasks, the language experience approach and peer support in class.
