Discovering Language

Introducing foreign languages in the primary school

  • Makes language learning fun

  • Gives pupils an understanding of how to learn different languages

  • Develops listening skills and stimulates communication

  • Can be delivered flexibly in school, enhancing cross-curricular links

  • Promotes cultural and linguistic diversity

  • Does not need specialist teachers

  • Eases the transition to secondary schools

When I observed one of their lessons I was particularly impressed with how perceptively the children were able to identify and comment on the similarities and differences between these languages. They have embraced the programme with much enthusiasm and have become keen, curious and fearless language learners...
