Ive been teaching ESOL to refugees for a while now. In Britain they provide the 'Skills for Life' materials which I mainly use to teach Somalian students.
I believe there isn't enough material available for these students. I believe these students need very basic/plain worksheets, without any difficult language being used.
However most resources use to many pictures/graphics or language which makes it too complicated for these students to understands. (Often these students cant read/speak/write English at all!)
Are there any other teachers who come across the same problems? If not, what materials would you recommend? (For now Ive been making my own materials which has been very time consuming!)
Besides that I think many materials are not photocopiable, which is quite frustrating as well!
