Abstract

The Lisbon Agenda, published in the year 2000, set the conditions for the establishment of the future linguistic policies across the European state members. After two decades of implementation, one of the most successful measures agreed upon, both in terms of social advancement and human rights, concerns early foreign language learning at pre-primary level, which comprises ages three to six in the Canary Islands. This study was carried out with two groups of undergraduate students, in their third year of the Pre-school Education Degree, to investigate their beliefs about the importance of early foreign language learning and, more specifically, about the need to train competent pre-school teachers to teach both English and French in Pre-school Education.
