Modern Languages in the Primary School

How can foreign language learning be developed in primary schools? In what ways can it be integrated into the primary classroom? Modern Languages in the Primary School tackles these questions, challenging current perceptions of primary modern languages, arguing that modern languages should be fully integrated into the primary curriculum, and looking at ways in which this can be achieved.

In this practice-oriented book, Philip Hood and Kristina Tobutt examine ways in which language-learning can be made a rich experience for all. They offer ideas on how to start language programs in schools, or enhance those which are already in place.
