ELLiE. Early Language Learning in Europe
2011 (English)Collection (editor) (Refereed)
The ELLiE book is one of many outcomes from the ELLiE transnational, longitudinal study (2006-10). Edited by the research team's coordinator (Janet Enever) this publication contains chapters from all the key members of the research team. The book aims to provide a detailed insight of the policy and implementation processes for early foreign language learning programmes in Europe, giving a rich description of learner experiences and contexts for learning. This book responds to politically and socially driven debates on the benefits and challenges of early start programmes, drawing on hard evidence from over 1,400 children, their schools, teachers and families in seven country contexts, to explore how early foreign language learning is currently taking shape in Europe.
