Summary
TELLS is TAFE English Language and Literacy Services, which provides initial student interviews, tender applications, resources and PD for ESL and Adult Literacy teachers throughout TAFE Queensland. The Qld TELLS generic bilingual dictionary project represents an innovative approach to one set of problems faced by newcomers from minority language groups and their teachers but can also be adapted for use by Aboriginal communities and Adult Literacy students from English-speaking backgrounds. Background and rationale to the dictionary: Teachers, students and newly arrived immigrant groups have experienced frustration for many years because of the almost complete lack of resources in minority languages. A casual conversation between Hazel Davidson and Hla Win Htun at the TELLS annual conference in July 2008 resulted in the inspiration for a generic picture dictionary, which could be translated into whatever minority language/s needed at any particular time in response to current immigration policy
