Early Language Learning for All: Examination of a Prekindergarten French Program in an Inclusion Setting
Regalla, Michele; Peker, Hilal
Foreign Language Annals, v48 n4 p618-634 Win 2015
This preliminary study examined a prekindergarten multimodal French program conducted for students in an inclusion charter school. Due to the age and varied ability levels of the students, media such as video and songs combined with kinesthetic activities served as the primary instructional approach. Data on children's ability to understand and use simple language were obtained from videorecordings as well as from vocabulary recognition and recall measures. Additional data from teacher questionnaires showed that students of all abilities developed basic communication skills in French and demonstrated enjoyment of the French program.
