Abstract

In this chapter, I will first summarize the findings of the four investigations into teaching and learning English as a foreign language in the primary school (the textbook study, the investigation of children’s books, the survey completed by EFL teachers, and the study focusing on L2 learners in different learning contexts). This will be followed by a section that addresses the limitations of the research project. Subsequent to this, I will discuss the theoretical, methodological and pedagogical implications of this project.
