CILT Cymru would like to thank all the teachers, pupils and schools involved in the Key

Stage 2 MFL Pilot Project who have shared their experiences and provided case study

material and photographs and without whose hard work and dedication to primary

modern foreign languages, this guidance would not be possible.

CILT Cymru is also grateful to schools involved in the CILT Cymru Triple Literacy Action

Research Project (2005-2007) and schools involved in international projects through

British Council funding. In particular CILT Cymru would like to thank the following:

Ysgol Botwnnog and its associate primary schools, Gwynedd

Glenboi Community Primary School, Mountain Ash

Ysgol Gynradd Glan Conwy, Conwy

Ysgol Gynradd Llangadog, Carmarthenshire

We are grateful to the ESRC Centre for Research into Bilingualism in Theory and

Practice, Bangor, for their continued support and unique insight into language learning

in Wales.

Many thanks also to the KS2 guidance working group and the many other contributors,

including teachers, headteachers, LEA advisers, ESTYN inspectors and the Welsh

Assembly Government, for their invaluable input and support throughout the pilot and

during the development of this guidance.
