Modern Languages in the Primary School Summary

Modern Languages in the Primary School by Philip Hood

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.

The authors examine ways in which language-learning can be made a rich experience for all. They offer ideas on how to start language programmes in schools, or enhance those already in place. The book:

- Features a 3-stage practical approach to teaching languages with different age groups in primary schools

- Develops a coherent view of language learning and teaching

- Refers to the KS2 Framework elements of oracy, literacy, intercultural understanding, knowledge about language and language learning strategies

- Contains a chapter which offers a theoretical introduction to content and language integrated learning (CLIL)

- Refers to the QTS Standards and offers a short guide to internet-based and multimedia resources

This book is for Primary ITE students and experienced teachers who are taking on the Modern Language coordinator role or teaching modern languages in primary schools for the first time.

Philip Hood is Course Director of the National SCITT Primary PGCE and Lecturer in Modern Languages Education at the University of Nottingham. Kristina Tobutt is a Primary teacher and Associate Consultant for Nottinghamshire LA.
