ABSTRACT
As an integral part of the adult literacy programs, English as a second language programs are growing exponentially fast in the United States. Many learners have not been successful in the traditional system of education so some turn to adult literacy programs for their second chance at the liberation and independence basic literacy can provide. This ethnography explores a domestic adult literacy program and how its goals and beliefs are communicated to its learners. ..PAT.-Unpublished Manuscript
