Abstract

In 1999 one of us, Lore Gallastegi, embarked on research to consider the teaching and learning of Spanish in primary and early secondary schools in West Central Scotland. This article is the third in a series of articles based on that research. The fi rst (Tierney and Gallastegi, 2005) reviewed the wider literature and considered a number of general issues and strategy. The second (Gallastegi and Tierney, 2005) reported on the linguistic competence of nine to thirteen year old pupils studying Spanish in West Central Scotland. This present article surveys pupil attitudes towards Spanish, and what follows is a description of the fi ndings from a longitudinal study involving pupils from P5 (aged 8/9) through to S1 (aged 11/12).
