This research was conducted into the development of year one pupils’ literacy and language in Limassol in the Republic of Cyprus. Though predominantly Greek speaking, the island has a significant minority of non-Greek speaking inhabitants who learn using Greek as an additional language (GAL) alongside some use of their Cypriot dialect. The main aim of this study was to examine whether an early experience of studying quality children’s literature, including texts in the island’s dialect, supplementary to the main text-book, may enhance oral language development and promote literacy.
