This book presents a research study investigating young foreign language learners’ ability to compose communicative texts in English. It reviews current research on young learners’ EFL writing, reports on the learners’ EFL writing competence, describes text quality at different CEFR language levels, and discusses current teaching practices and the learners’ perception of EFL writing.
This book gives an account of the design, implementation and results of the research project "An Empirical Study of EFL Writing at Primary School", which was carried out in the Canton of Aargau, Switzerland, between 2016 and 2020. The study investigated the writing competence of 322 primary school learners in grade 6 (aged 12–13) in their fourth year of learning English as a foreign language (EFL). Besides gauging the learners’ EFL writing competence and describing the characteristics and qualities of the learners’ texts at different language levels, the study examined current teaching practices and the learners’ perception of EFL writing, and measured the effects of individual and educational factors on the learners’ EFL writing competence.
