Early Language Learning

Learning environments where modern languages flourish

Fostering learning environments where modern languages flourish aims to place languages right at the heart of education policy developments. It seeks through (and for) languages to strengthen the development both of social competences and competences for democratic citizenship. The project is supported by a European network of partner schools, with innovative approaches to establishing language friendly learning environments which promotes the exchange of related resources, research and practice.

Inspiring language learning and teaching in the early years - Why it matters and what it looks like for children age 3-12

This project aims to help teachers and other educators prepare young children to successfully face the challenges of a culturally and linguistically diverse world. It will provide them with learning and teaching resources and strategies which take existing linguistic repertoires into account in order to (further) develop the linguistic and intercultural competences of both learners and educators.
