Discovering primary languages
The RiPL network is a group of researchers, practising teachers, teacher educators and policy makers interested in Research in Primary Languages. The teaching and learning of foreign languages in English state primary schools has been a compulsory part of the curriculum for all children at Key Stage 2 since September 2014. But context really does play an important part, and a one-size national curriculum, however worthy in intention, is not always easy to teach! Here we explore issues, gather and share ideas, discuss and evaluate with the aim of supporting and improving foreign language teaching.
Find out what research has been carried out on the teaching and learning of languages in primary schools.
This White Paper is the outcome of the RiPL Primary Languages Policy Summit, which took place on Friday 23rd November 2018 at the British Academy in London.
Here we house a collection of resources for teachers and researchers to use in their teaching and studies.
