Thanks for these Joe. Although we already have primary French from primary 6, more of my local schools are teaching it further down the school. In Tobermory next year we are hoping to introduce both French and Gaelic to our 5 year olds as these are the two languages taught in the secondary department.

Cheers Lynne,

I found both Sharing Skills programmes to be very positive and encouraging. I would imagine there are a lot of Primary teachers worried about the expectation on them of having to offer a modern language as part of their teaching repertoire by 2010. This type of programme should help to alleviate some of their concerns though by showing good examples where primary languages are working very well.

I suppose the problem will be for those primaries not fortunate enough to be near a language college with an outreach programme in place or have a suitably qualified member of staff that can mentor others.

Working in a middle school, I've seen the benefits of starting French in Yr 5 at first hand. Our pupils love it at that age and that bodes well for when they get a bit older. They still remember all the songs we did and still like to sing them in class.
