A Foreign Language in the Primary School?
Stern, H.H.
An introduction provides a brief history of foreign language study in the primary school in various countries and a brief examination of the different attitudes toward early foreign language study. The body of the article presents a case for foreign language study in the primary school on the grounds of sociopolitical developments, trends in primary education, and, to a lesser extent, the nature of language and the psychological characteristics of the child. Problems considered are (1) choice of language, (2) content and method, (3) planning and continuity, (4) teachers and their training, and (5) evaluation of results and research. (AF)
