The study involves 300 Danish learners of English (ages 6-11). Receptive vocabulary (PPVT™-4 ) and grammar (Trog-2) tests were administered at the onset of formal teaching and after 1 year. Classroom practices were evaluated by video-recording and coding English lessons in 15 classrooms. Extramural habits were investigated via a language diary where children via self-report reported on extramural activities.
The analysis shows that classroom practices are strikingly different for 1st and 3rd grade starters, while there is little variation within the two groups. Yet Young and very young learners engage in very similar EE activities despite the difference in age. Receptive posttests show that 3rd grade starters are more proficient than 1st grade starters after one year. However, our pretest showed that the 3rd graders were already more proficient than the 1st graders to receiving formal instruction, leaving us to assume the differences lie in the extramural activities.
