Draft Curriculum Guidelines:
The draft curriculum guidelines for Modern Languages in Primary Schools were developed by NCCA. They are laid out in the same way as the Primary School Curriculum (1999). The three strands of the curriculum are communicative competence, language awareness and cultural (intercultural) awareness. The strand units, listening, speaking, reading and writing, are explored and developed under these three strands.
