SCILTThe learning of a modern language usually

begins in primary school and in some cases as
early as nursery school. In the coming years
schools will be working towards the ambitious
goal of every pupil in Scottish schools learning a
language from primary 1 and a second language
from primary 5.
In secondary schools, it is the entitlement of
every young person to learn a language to at least the 3rd level, which for most learners will mean to the end of S3. In the senior phase, there should be a range of language options at different levels so that all learners can continue to develop their skills and achieve national qualifications.
