Read an article in the Times last year (Sep 11th 2010) that the compulsory teaching of MFL in primary schools had been quietly dropped in the 'wash-up' of legislation before the election and that some schools , it was feared, would be dropping plans to teach them, although the programme of MFL teaching in primary schools was quite well-established ( and rightly so). This article might well be dated but what is the legal position at the moment? Has it changed? And has there been a rush by primary schools to slim down or abandon plans for the introduction of MFL. Also.... does French still dominate in primary schools or are other languages catching up?
