Abstract:
This study proposes that there is potential to better understand the educational experiences of pupils learning English as an Additional Language (EAL) in the mainstream classroom through exploration of the perspectives of their class teachers. Training in English as an additional language is infrequent among mainstream primary class teachers but they represent a central contributor to a child's second (or additional) language development.
