Young children’s language learning pathways
Making early language learning visible

The project aims to make early language learning in educational contexts visible through a range of methods and tools. These make it possible to identify, understand and document language learning of children age 3 to 12 and thereby create learning opportunities allowing them to progress along their language learning pathways.
