A 1+2 Approach to Language Learning

Scottish Government is committed to ensuring that all children and young people are equipped with the skills they need for life and work. By improving language learning in our schools, we are ensuring that our children and young people have the skills they need to live and work in an increasingly global society. By 2021, every school in Scotland will offer children the opportunity to learn a first additional language from primary one, and a second additional language by primary five. This will continue until they reach the end of S3. (Scottish Government website: Language learning).

This ambition contributes significantly to the Scottish Attainment Challenge agenda.
