Two new leaflets from SCILT will be powerful tools for language teachers, Support for Learning colleagues and senior management, and they will equip you with the information you need to convince parents that language learning really is for all!
Making languages count for my child promotes the entitlement to language learning for all learners from P1 until the end of S3. It provides information on this entitlement as well as answering common questions about language learning and giving advice on how parents can support their children in learning languages.
Developing literacy through language learning demonstrates how learning additional languages can play an important role in helping children and young people develop their literacy skills in their mother tongue. The leaflet gives an insight into current practice in language learning in Scottish schools and provides parents with strategies to support their child’s literacy.
To order copies of these leaflets for your school visit the Learners and Parents pages of our website. Further SCILT resources are available from this page. Although all our products are free of charge, we ask in return that you briefly explain how you intend to use them.
