Early Language Learning in Europe

Early Language Learning in Europe | English Learners in US Schools | Scoop.it

ELLie research report on early language learning in Europe is now online and can be downloaded from this link.

 

The ELLiE study provides a detailed insight of the policy and implementation processes for early foreign language learning programmes in Europe, giving a rich description of learner experiences and contexts for learning. Evidence is drawn from over 1,400 children, their schools, teachers and families in seven country contexts, exploring how early FLL is currently taking shape in Europe. The scale and longitudinal design of the study is likely to make many of the findings also highly relevant to other similar contexts.
