Abstract

This paper is an overview of foreign language instruction in the elementary school. Through a review of the current literature, the rationale for language instruction at the elementary level is explored. Current program models and frequency of such programs in United States' elementary schools today are identified. Characteristics of successful programs in the areas of planning, teaching methods, and evaluation are addressed. Teacher qualifications are examined and steps being taken to rectify a lack of qualified elementary foreign teachers are offered as suggestions for the future.
