Abstract

The European Music Portfolio: A Creative Way into Languages (EMP-L) is a project that aims to support music and language learning in the primary classroom (for details about the rationale and approach, see Ludke & Weinmann, 2012). As part of a Masters degree project, EMP-L materials were taken into the demanding setting of English language-learning at a summer education programme in the remote Albanian community of Thethi, Northern Albania. In this article we describe how the materials were used in Thethi, and consider how cross-curricular links between language and music teaching could support the primary music curriculum here in the UK.
