- Early foreign language education in Germany means language learning in primary school. The languages taught there are English or French. At this early age of six years foreign language learning is oriented on the acquisition of the native language. The knowledge of the structure of the foreign language supports the development of the native language and vice versa. Foreign language learning should therefore be comparable to the native language learning, i.e. it should be based on situation, topic, action and experience. Instruction should rely on the natural succession of the learning phases: frequent and intensive listening should precede imitative and dialogical speaking. That is what input-oriented foreign language education does in Germany in early childhood teaching.
