Welcome! If you teach or tutor refugees, young or old, than you’ve come to the right place. Several years ago, I worked as a Case Manager in refugee resettlement. Though brief, this experience was the catalyst that started me on my journey as an ESL instructor and current graduate student in the field of Foreign Language Education/TESOL. It is my hope that this blog may serve as a place for educators to network with one another in the service of refugee students.

The Center for Applied Linguistics - don’t let the name scare you away from this fabulous resource! CAL has been working with the U.S. government and resettlement agencies all across America and overseas to collect, develop and share resources on various aspects of refugee resettlement. CAL is also home to the Cultural Orientation and Resource Center, where you can network with other service providers to share and swap best practices or take a look at the latest research and statistics.Visit the CAL or COR Center website to find information on the languages, cultures, special needs and resettlement of refugee people groups or look for links to these pages under "Resources."
