An early-years language policy consultation document has been launched by
the National Language Policy In Education Committee of the education
ministry.

The consultation document: ‘A Language Policy for the Early Years in Malta
and Gozo’, follows the publication of the ‘Language Education Policy
Profile for Malta’ by the Council of Europe in March, 2015.

Education minister Evarist Bartolo said that it was important to put
language education on a solid basis in the early years. “Languages are a
huge asset for Malta and have a wide-ranging impact in a number of spheres:
education, social and economic development and international affairs.”

Dr Natalia Kucirkova of the Open University, UK, a leading international
expert in the field of iPads and education, spoke at the launch of the
document of the role of technology in young children’s language and
literacy development.

The consultation document may be accessed on the Ministry for Education
website.
