This unit of study focuses on the teaching and learning of additional languages in the primary school context and will enable students to prepare to implement a languages program. Students will focus on the rationale behind "an early start" to learning additional languages. Through an examination of policy and syllabus documents, suitable teaching methods and pedagogy, students will focus on what is required for establishing and sustaining a primary languages program. Students will also develop language lesson planning skills, and become familiar with materials that are suitable for the primary languages classroom.
