This paper, which forms part of an ongoing PhD study, attempts a summary overview of research on pupil competence in modern languages in the primary school, as presented by a Systematic Literature Review (SLR). The research question for the SLR was: “What sort of evidence do research papers present for pupil competence skills and language progress in the primary school?” The paper reflects on the literature review findings in regard to pupil language competence and the recommendations for practitioners and policy makers they offer.
