This volume brings together papers and presentations from a three-day Primary Innovations Regional Seminar held in Hanoi, Vietnam, in March 2007. It covers a range of issues including: language policy and planning across both primary and secondary levels; teacher training systems; the implications of introducing systemic change; curriculum reform, and case studies. A summary report of the research undertaken in eight countries on primary ELT prior to the seminar concludes the volume.
The British Council developed the Primary Innovations project to support change in primary English language teaching in nine countries in East Asia: Indonesia; Japan; Korea; Malaysia; the Philippines; Singapore; Taiwan; Thailand, and Vietnam.
