This international conference provides an exchange platform for current empirical insights into the learning and teaching of foreign (rather than second) languages to young learners with a special focus on primary school contexts (age 5-12). The aim is to better understand the factors which contribute to effective and motivating early foreign language teaching and to identify research gaps which need to be tackled in the future. With its clear empirical focus, the conference strives to advance evidence-based insights into early foreign language learning in instructional contexts. While the conference language will be English, research on any target language and from any part of the globe is welcome.
