Summary to Come

ESL Reads

It was a delight to participate in the Symposium and to engage with so many passionate EAL educators. I thoroughly enjoyed speaking to many EAL educators about the challenges of sourcing age-appropriate texts for their secondary and adult EAL learners, and being able to share our resources with teachers. Learning about the different EAL settings across Victoria and attending the interesting sessions was a highlight!

ESL Reads is a Digital Resource Library for EAL Teachers, providing relatable reading material in both digital and printable formats, accompanied by teacher notes, worksheets and EAL curriculum mapping.

Languages & Multicultural Education Resource Centre (LMERC)

LMERC is a specialist resource centre for educators across all sectors with both digital and physical resources to support EAL teaching and learning. This includes academic and practical teacher resources; culturally inclusive fiction and non-fiction; games and storytelling kits and realia (puppets, masks, clothes and toys).

We regularly provide bi-lingual dictionaries and picture books, readers and other resources to support your students in schools across Victoria. If you need any resources, you can visit us in Carlton, email for suggestions or look through our catalogue and request items. We have a growing collection of ebooks and audio books that you can access through the catalogue.
