The Scottish Government’s policy, Language learning in Scotland: a 1+2 approach (Scottish Government, May 2012), is aimed at ensuring that every child has the opportunity to learn a modern language from P1 onwards. Additionally, each child should have the right to learn a second modern language from P5 onwards. The policy should be fully implemented across the country by 2020.
