English Clubs: Introducing English to Young Learners
Afia, Jawida Ben
English Teaching Forum, v44 n2 p20-23 2006
This article introduces an approach taken in Tunisia to introduce English as a foreign language to children in primary school classrooms. The author states that in Tunisia, children in primary schools are first taught Arabic and then French. The government does not want to overburden the students with English learning. Then, the author describes in detail the approach of an English club, including the materials and staff members and their training. The article concludes with a list of recommendations based on the Tunisian approach.
