They were prepared by Dr, Stephen Bax, following visits to Thailand, Indonesia and Korea in November and December 2009, during which the status of English Bilingual Education (EBE) in each country was investigated through a variety of data sources, including documentary data, school and classroom observations, and interviews with a range of stakeholders from the Ministry, schools and elsewhere.

This report is a direct result of the first English Bilingual Education symposium held in Jakarta in June 2009 as part of the British Council Access English project. Set against global and regional contexts, the individual reports provide detailed insights into the policy, planning and implementation of programmes in four countries which require children to learn through more than one language.

The ELLiE study provides a detailed insight of the policy and implementation processes for early foreign language learning programmes in Europe, giving a rich description of learner experiences and contexts for learning. Evidence is drawn from over 1,400 children, their schools, teachers and families in seven country contexts, exploring how early FLL is currently taking shape in Europe. The scale and longitudinal design of the study is likely to make many of the findings also highly relevant to other similar contexts.
