Evaluation of language learning (UK 2008)
Ofsted (UK) publishes report on evaluation of language learning .. July 2008
The report, 'The changing landscape of languages, an evaluation of language learning 2004 -2007' highlights what needs to improve if standards in modern languages are to rise. It looks at how well primary schools are developing modern languages and the progress they are making to ensure that all pupils in Key Stage 2 are able to study a language. The report also looks at standards and achievements in secondary schools.
Common weaknesses in provision for secondary modern languages included insufficient opportunities to develop good speaking skills or independent speaking and writing. Students' speaking skills were an area of particular weakness in both key stages.
