Title: Early Learning of Modern Foreign Languages
Subtitle: Processes and Outcomes
Edited By: Marianne Nikolov
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847691453
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

Modern languages are offered to young learners at an increasingly early age
in many countries; yet few publications have focused on what is available
to children in different contexts. This volume fills this gap by
documenting the state-of-the-art in researching young language learners
using a variety of research methods. It demonstrates how young children
progress and benefit from an early exposure to modern languages in
different educational contexts, and how affective, cognitive, social,
linguistic and classroom-related factors interact in the processes. A
special strength is the range of languages: although English is the most
widely learnt language, chapters focus on various target languages:
Croatian, French, English, German, Italian, Spanish and Ukrainian and the
contexts include China, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Norway, Poland,
the Ukraine, and the United Kingdom.
