In the final chapter we will be reviewing the main messages from the book, looking back to what we said in Chapter One were the important issues to consider and considering where we could sensibly and above all creatively move next. As an important part of this we have within this chapter a full case study written by colleagues at Scottish CILT (Centre for Information on Language Teaching) of their coherent policy to increase and enhance the language curriculum from five years old and to make for a continuous provision up to the end of the secondary phase. Scotland began this journey in advance of England and Wales and in the 1990s committed a large sum of money to launching a full scale primary languages programme.
