And yet our govt wants kids to be mistaught a foreign language from the age of seven. ( Yes mistaught – as in most primary schools none of the teachers can speak any foreign language, yet alone teach it to the whole school. )
This is one of Gove’s worse ideas.
I’m afraid that I have to disagree with the shed dweller.
I think the teaching of language to seven year olds is an absolutely fabulous idea. Grammar, vocab, spelling, pronunciation: I cannot think of a better preparation for the life ahead.
We could start with English…..
