Preparing for Languages in the Primary School

Some time ago, the delivery of foreign languages in the primary school was ensured in France by an army of non-qualified teachers, most of them students, with an "agrement" certificate.

Now the teachers in the state sector are expected to teach languages on their own, with the only exception being in the private sector that still use staff with the "agrement" certificate.

A website has been set up to support teachers

Authentic and other teaching materials

An equivalent website was launched here to support the anoucement that languages are to be compulsory at KS2 from 2010.
