The teaching of foreign language learning in Scottish primary schools will be the focus for a conference taking place at the Scottish Parliament in May.

The European & External Relations Committee is holding the event as part of its inquiry into the Scottish Government’s recent proposal to increase foreign language learning in primary schools. It will bring together parliamentarians and those involved in language learning to discuss the key findings of the committee’s inquiry to date.

Open to all with an interest in language education, whether as a parent, teacher or policy developer, the conference takes place on the morning of Friday 10 May 2013 at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh.

Visit the Scottish Parliament website for details of the keynote speakers at the conference and further background information.
