This project aims at documenting and discussing the conditions for implementing bilingual teaching at primary school level based on two main issues:
- What are the specific didactic components for bilingual teaching in primary school, bearing in mind that the boundaries between subjects are flexible but that learning a first foreign language usually starts in HarmoS grade 5?
- What is the minimum requirement in a bilingual education? Are we facing a quantitative problem (a certain amount of time spent in L2) or a qualitative issue (a specific vision of the curriculum)?
