Introducing additional languages to primary

The Working Group recommends that schools offer children access to an additional language from Primary 1. (Language Learning in Scotland: A 1+2 Approach, p12).
MLPS must be given the secure place it deserves in the primary school.
(Modern Languages Excellence Report, p23) .
We know from all of the research we undertake that early intervention produces the best outcomes for young people. The 1+2 Approach is designed to expose young people to different languages at the earliest possible opportunity and to shape their view that languages are something essential.
