"Hola, bonjour, ciao" Is this the aim of Modern Foreign Language teaching in the primary classroom?

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

In 2002 the UK government outlined its strategy to introduce Modern Foreign Languages (MFLs) into primary schools by 2010. This study investigates the opinions of tutors and trainee teachers specialising in primary MFLs. Data from questionnaires, interviews and focus groups indicate that both groups consider linguistic awareness and transferable language learning skills to be more important than cultural awareness. The study also examines whether spending a month teaching abroad encourages an understanding of different educational systems.
