In the Foundation Phase, the main skills in the First Additional Language curriculum are: Thinking and Reasoning and Language Structure and Use, which are integrated into all 4 languages skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing)

Children come to school knowing their home language. They can speak it fluently, and already know several thousand words. Learning to read and write in Grade 1 builds on this foundation of oral language. Therefore, it is easier to learn to read and write in your home language.
