Re: Dyslexia and multilinguilism
I teach in a primary school where the senior pupils are taught French as a second language. Most pupils love it as it is presented through activities, music, oral work and very little writing. It is very difficult for some pupils who have made a very solid start in primary school to experience more failure when the secondary curriculum requires more reading and writing. They then drop the subject and perhaps could have continued in a more oral based approach that would have allowed them the opportunity to become more fluent in another language without feeling they have failed in two languages.
