This project focused on how to effectively promote the development of French oral language skills as a foundation for literacy in primary French Immersion classrooms. There are five chapters in this project. Chapter one outlined the purpose, significance and background of the project, while chapter two presented a qualitative thematic and study by study literature review approach that explored oral language skill development in second language teaching and learning. Research in the literature review chapter demonstrated the importance of oral language development for achievement in literacy in second language learning and focused on the skills of communicative competency, vocabulary acquisition, and phonological awareness.
