Early Foreign Language Learning – the Level of Personal Development and the Development of Strategies in The Second Three-Year Primary School Period
When teaching foreign languages to children aged between 9 and 11 it is necessary to consider the stage of their mental development. The article outlines an introduction to their abilities at this age, recommendation on how to teach them, stages of knowledge they are able to acquire and a detailed presentation of strategy knowledge according to R. Oxford. The second part of the article focuses on the results of a survey on teaching methods and the level to promote different types of strategies. The results affirm some of the established approaches and stimulating strategies, but also deliver further recommendations for future work with children in the field of emotional self-regulation.
