The final report evaluating a pilot project intorducing foreign language teaching in the upper primary level in Norwegian schools. This pilot was a project organized by the Directorate of Education in Norway which lasted for two years, from fall 2010 to spring 2012.
Schools the pilot project had the opportunity to offer teaching within the framework of two different models:
- the progression model or
- the introduction model.
The goal of the progression model was for pupils to develop good language skills in one foreign
language. The introduction model aimed to ensure pupils became familiar with several languages and got a taste of different languages, which would help pupils with language selection in the 8th grade (first year of lower secondary school).
