This short film illustrates the teaching of French to a Year 3 class. It shows a 20 minute sequence of extracts from a single 60-minute lesson, and is followed by an interview with the specialist French teacher. The film is an outcome of a research project "Learning French from ages 5, 7 and 11", funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (Award no. RES-062-23-1545). The project tracked and compared the learning of French by young children of different starting ages (in Year 1, Year 3 and Year 7).
