This book sets out the agenda for the future of modern language teaching in schools. It aims to look beyond the dominant methods of second language teaching to a new approach emphasising the integration of language learning within the wider curriculum. Through research and case studies from the UK, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium and Finland, the book shows how teachers and policy makers are increasingly moving towards a system where second languages are taught through other curriculum subjects, rather than alongside them. Key areas covered are: * recent trends and issues in the teaching and learning of modern foreign languages * the rationale for integrating languages across the curriculum * how cross-curricular language teaching is developing across Europe * practical materials and useful ideas for teachers and policy makers This timely book will interest all foreign language teachers, particularly those on in-service or higher level degree courses. It will also be useful reading for student teachers and educators, and policy makers, internationally.

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.

The MEC/BC bilingual project, initiated in 1996 in primary as a unique experiment within the Spanish state education system, and in September 2004 the classes that had started their bilingual education 8 years earlier took the project forward into Secondary schools.The formal agreement between the MEC/BC states that the aim of the project is to provide students from the age of three to sixteen with a bilingual, bicultural education through an integrated Spanish/English curriculum based on the Spanish National Curriculum and aspects of the National Curriculum for England and Wales. The implantation of such a curriculum requires, firstly, with regard to English as a subject, a very different classroom approach from the traditional EFL classroom where the focus is on learning English as a foreign language; secondly, a similar new methodology for teaching and learning other curricular areas through English. Such an integrated approach sits very positively within the Directives of the Council of Europe which insists on the need for students to be competent in three European languages by the end of the obligatory period of Secondary Education and that the learning of the first foreign language should begin in the early years of formal education. In addition to this, the secondary integrated curricula have consistently focused on the continuing development of students¿ skills and learning strategies, thus firmly establishing learning as a lifelong process. The specific objectives of the Project in the Secondary education level are to: continue the acquisition and learning of both languages through an integrated content-based curriculum, encourage awareness and understanding of the diversity of both cultures, facilitate the exchange of teachers and students, encourage the use of modern technologies in learning other languages, promote the certification of studies under both educational systems, if and when appropriate.
