Language learning is viewed as a critical educational need in refugee hosting communities in Jordan, but where does this learning take place?
This report shows how the informal education sector has created greater language learning provision since the start of the Syrian war in 2011. However, there are many challenges with the delivery of these classes, including their format, the levels on offer, a ‘fear’ of English, and a lack of formal teacher training, amongst other concerns. The research is based on quantitative data collection and qualitative fieldwork conducted in Jordan with a wide range of community centres. This publication is free to download in a pdf format below.
