Since the late 1990s, teaching languages in schools has been perceived as a high priority in Europe, with reports and recommendations through the first decade of the 21st century strongly promoting the introduction of foreign languages from the earliest phases of primary schooling. This paper reports on the extent to which European recommendations have been realised at national levels, drawing on evidence from a major transnational longitudinal study (ELLiE 2007-‐10) (Szpotowicz et al, 2009; Lopriore, 2010; Muñoz et al 2010). A short summary of findings is provided, together with a review of factors highlighted by the study which remain in need of attention and consolidation if the target of a plurilingual citizenry is to be achieved.
