L'initiation à une langue étrangère au cycle 1 : le cas de l'anglais

Abstract : In our society characterized by the explosion of international trade, the mastery of English language seems essential. According to international assessments, France seems to be rather behind. The mission of the Primary school is to take pupils to level A1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages at the end of the third cycle and pupils begin its formal learning at the second cycle. As stated by specialists of this topic, beginning to make pupils aware of a foreign language from nursery school has many advantages. Besides, different possibilities exist for the implementation of this learning through various teaching approaches (communicative, active, storytelling and recreational approaches). One can hypothesize that if a pupil has been made familiar to English language from the first cycle by the appropriate teaching, and if success factors are fulfilled, then it will be possible to improve, through the development of this pupil’s attitudes and skills, the validation of the objectives set by the official programmes of the national education system as well as his entry into the formal learning of English language at the second cycle. This study explored the implementation of introduction to English at the first cycle through questionnaires to first cycle teachers and to foreign language assistants, as well as through observation of learning sessions in different classes of all grade levels of the first cycle.
