It's that handsome, bearded man from the telly! No, not Gary Lineker, the other one. The lovable, self-appointed community leader Mr Khan shares everything you need to know about living in post-Brexit Britain, such as bringing up the perfect daughter, educ-asian, romance and how to 'get our country back' (to how it was when all the Pakistanis came). He offers advice you'll struggle to find anywhere else: how do you make curry for white people? How do you make curry for brown people? How do you eat a custard creamie? Where should you go on holiday? And most importantly, what is the correct amount of toilet paper to use in one sitting? Featuring previously unseen photographs of Mr. Khan's early years, this guide is designed to sit on your coffee table, in your glove box and on your toilet cistern - at hand whenever you need it. Oh Twaddi!

Citizen Khan is one of television's most popular series, following the trials and tribulations of self-appointed Muslim community leader Mr Khan and his long-suffering family and friends in Sparkhill, Birmingham ("the capital of British Pakistan"). Now, for the first time, the larger than life character is taking the opportunity to share with the public his own particular take on 21st century Britain. From parenthood, to politics, to business, British culture and a great deal more, no subject is safe from Mr Khan's somewhat unconventional examination. The book will be fully illustrated, so will offer plenty of opportunities to share images of Mr Khan's most precious possessions, from his passport and family photos, to his prized yellow Mercedes and his Italian/Chinese designed checked suit (both purchased in 1981). And it'll be the perfect gift for any of the millions of fans of the show who'll be tuning in when it hits screens in the run-up to Christmas.

This book addresses the politically charged issue of citizenship and English language learning among adult migrants in the UK. Whilst citizenship learning is inherent in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), the book argues that top-down approaches and externally-designed curricula are not a productive or useful approach. Meaningful citizenship education in adult ESOL is possible, however, if it brings social and political content centre-stage alongside pedagogy which develops the capabilities for active, grassroots, participatory citizenship. The chapters deliver a detailed examination of citizenship and ESOL in the UK. They address a range of community and college-based settings and the needs and circumstances of different groups of ESOL students, including refugees, migrant mothers, job seekers and students with mental health needs. The book draws attention to the crucial role of ESOL teachers as ‘brokers of citizenship’ mediating between national policy and the experiences and needs of adult migrant students. The book links together language pedagogy and citizenship theory with the practical concerns of ESOL teachers and students.

This book explores the process of acquiring UK citizenship and investigates how the naturalisation process is experienced, with an explicit focus on language practices. This ethnographically-informed study focuses on W, a Yemeni immigrant in the UK, during the final phase of the citizenship process. In this time, he encounters linguistic trials and tests involving the Life in the UK citizenship test, community life, ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages), adult education and the citizenship ceremony. The richness of linguistic data featured in this book allows for a nuanced portrayal of the complexities of becoming a citizen. This is especially so in the context of the UK's assimilationist form of citizenship which is reflected in the introduction of a citizenship test within a broader socio-political climate. Becoming a Citizen offers a detailed analysis of the linguistic process of naturalisation in the the UK and is relevant to scholars working in sociolinguistics, language policy, migration studies and ethnographic research.
