Abstract [en]

There are many factors affecting early language learning in the classroom. but the teacher and the teaching that the students are exposed to seem to be the most important factors, according to recent global research. Teachers` approach to the language, their beliefs and what they do and care about in the learning situation, seem to be essential in the early learning of languages. The role of the students` first language teacher in a life-long learning perspective implies a responsibility to establish a linguistic self-confidence by creating a learning environment where all students are able to experience feelings of safety, support and success in their language learning.
