Abstract

The first chapter of the book sets the background for the comparative exploration of learner-centred education (LCE) in language learning programmes for adult migrants in four European countries (Cyprus, Scotland, Malta, Estonia). It presents the rationale of the research project, upon which the book is built, its objectives, the research methodology and the comparative approach adopted. The design of the four case studies, the research questions as well as a brief introduction to the concept of learner-centred education, as a policy and practice, and its constituting elements, are discussed. The chapter concludes with a synopsis of the content of the book.
