9780702188749: Teaching English as a First Additional Language in the Foundation Phase: Practical Guidelines

Providing clear, pedagogical steps and curriculum guidance, this practical book focuses on laying the strong foundation that is needed to assist learners in using English as the language of learning and teaching (LoLT) from grade four onward. In grade four, the majority of learners make the transition from their home language to English as the LoLT; to assist learners in this transition, it is important that teachers introduce English into the classroom from as early as Grade R (reception year, prior to starting grade one). The earlier learners are exposed to English, the more proficient they will become. Included in this book are strategies for introducing English into the classroom, techniques for teaching English alongside learners’ home language, teaching resources for classroom use, and ideas for planning lessons.
