Abstract [en]

Young language learners deserve a well-planned, age-appropriate, and communicative language experience - one that will develop their self-esteem and motivate them to continue learning languages in the future and prepare them for global citizenship.

Early Language Learning and Teaching: A1-A2, illustrates how to use the CEFR to create a learner-centred curriculum for young language learners. By adopting a plurilingual approach to language teaching and providing increased exposure to new language learning contexts, teachers and learners can embark on a language journey filled with communicative, interactive activities which promote language use in the classroom and beyond.

This book will help teachers to view the CEFR not just as a document of reference for policy development, but as an essential tool for planning and assessing early language learning in the classroom. Using the positive ´can do´descriptors for language use at the A1-A2 levels, teachers and learners will be able to identify clear learning goals which will set them on the path to life-long language learning, and allow young learners to bring their own creativity, knowledge and joy of learning into the language classroom.
