Early EFL learning in context – Evidence from a country case study

Children are starting to learn English at increasingly younger ages.  

This paper researches the phenomenon from a contextualised perspective.  Data were collected from 173 Croatian YLs of EFL whose progress was followed for three years.  The work formed part of the ELLIE project. The contextualised approach can offer broader and deeper insights into EFL learning. The paper concludes with recommendations for further research.
