Welcome to the Primary Languages website

www.nacell.org.uk has changed!

The Primary Languages website brings together two CILT websites - NACELL (formerly at www.nacell.org.uk) and the Primary Languages Training Zone, to form one national gateway to advice, information and support for everyone interested in primary languages.

Further information

NACELL, the ‘National Advisory Centre for Early Language Learning’, was set up in 1999 to promote and develop the provision of languages in primary education. The project was funded by the DCSF and coordinated by CILT. Work to support primary languages is now part of CILT’s ongoing primary programme. ‘NACELL’ is still used to refer to the CILT Library’s collection of primary languages teaching materials – Visit the CILT Library.

The Primary Languages Training Zone is CILT’s online toolkit for professional development. With over 200 video clips of language teaching in the primary school, audio files and transcripts in six languages, all the features of Training Zone are fully integrated into the Primary Languages website – Visit the Training Zone.
