Learning a second language for school is not simply a linguistic challenge; it poses social, cultural, academic, and cognitive challenges as well. This article describes a conceptual model for acquiring a second language for school that reflects all these challenges, and makes recommendations for instruction stemming from this model. Many second language learners need good reading skills in English and reading has always been an important focus of English language teaching programs. However current approaches to the teaching of second language reading are very different from earlier approaches.

  All in all, the book provides a wealth of information about the use of learners’ first language in the second and foreign language classroom. I strongly recommend this book. It deserves a place on the shelf of second language teacher educators, curriculum developers and classroom language policy-makers alike. Book Description. Teaching Foreign Languages in the Primary School is for every teacher –whether generalist or specialist, trainee or experienced – wanting to confidently introduce foreign language teaching into their classroom.. Based on the author’s extensive experience of teaching across Key Stages , this book provides practical strategies that can be easily implemented in your.
