In part one, to contextualise the present project, the article outlines a brief history of the language policies which have been carried out in Europe and in Italy in the last decades in the primary school sector. In part two, it describes the operational phases which have led to the implementation of the current training programme and explain the theoretical and legal basis of the project as well as the research perspectives underlying the creation of specific syllabuses for each level of language competence.
