What is included with this book?


"Teaching Foreign Languages in the Primary School advises trainee and qualified teachers and teaching assistants on how to teach modern foreign languages (MFL) successfully at primary level." "Brimming with case studies and tried and tested ideas from a multilingual language teacher and ITE lecturer, Teaching Foreign Languages in the Primary School shows that language teaching at primary level can be both effective and enjoyable - no matter what language the pupils have as their first, and no matter what level the teacher has reached in their own language learning."--BOOK JACKET.
