Abstract [en]

After thirty years of resistance, primary foreign languages are slowly being re-introduced in England. Which languages are taught and how children respond to these choices appears to be much influenced by both their personal connections and by societal perceptions of the target culture and language.

This study draws on empirical data collected from a sample of 164 children, their teachers and school principals, in a city to the south-east of England during the introductory phase of national provision. The chapter will critically examine societal resistance to foreign language learning and consider the likely impact of this resistance on early attitudes and later motivation as the new policy is rolled out across the country. It will be proposed that a national campaign of publicity and promotion is needed if the general public are to be sufficiently convinced of the value of languages to provide the vital positive home environment necessary for young learners to progress.
