LENS: Successful Language Learning and Teaching

Successful language learning and teaching considers a number of factors, including the age and stage of the child and the way in which language is acquired in a range of different settings.

  • Language learning and age

The age and stage of the individual child influences the pedagogical approaches to language learning in the classroom.


  • Language acquisition

There are a variety of different ways in which a language can be acquired. Learning a language in the home, family or community is different from learning a language in an educational setting.
