As a result of following the Languages in Primary Schools Facebook page, I was made aware early this very morning, that there has been long awaited news on the status of Primary Languages from 2014.

You can find the details here:

Already there has been a flurry of comments in response to Catherine Cheater’s link to the Telegraph article.

What are your thoughts?

How does Gove expect for this to be a success if there is no funding to support it?

Is age 7 still early enough?

What are your thoughts on the suggested languages?

Has this been thought through?

Best wishes, Suzi
