Learning English was a key tenet of the Australian Government's official policy of assimilation after World War II. Migrants were offered English lessons in European Displaced Persons camps, during the ship voyage, in Australian migrant reception centres and in the workplace. This booklet is part of a collection of texts used by Lois Carrington to teach English to European migrants coming to Australia after World War II.
