A 1+2 Approach to Language Learning

Scottish Government's ambition is to expand and improve language learning, by 2021, so that our young people are equipped with the skills and competencies they need in our increasingly globalised world. From 2021 every child is entitled to learn a first additional language from primary one and a second by primary five. This entitlement continues until the end of S3. (Scottish Government website: Language learning).

This ambition contributes significantly to the Scottish Attainment Challenge agenda.
