Abstract

Family is the social institution where a child is born, develops cognitively, socially and empathically, and which contributes to the child finding his/her place in the society of the future. Family helps a child form, learn, understand and develop basic aspects of his/her conduct out in the world until the he/she is introduced to the first education institution in his/her life, namely kindergarten. A pupil’s success and efficiency take shape only if the relationship between school and family is very solid. If parents are involved in school and after-school activities, then they can even support foreign-language learning by donating teaching materials, textbooks, storybooks, games in foreign languages, puppets, etc. to the school library. They can work together with foreign-language teachers to organise field trips, camps, programmes, workshops, exchange courses abroad. Parents’ involvement in school activities is a necessity for both the present and the future. Our article presents a survey of 290 pupils and 51 parents regarding the latter’s views on studying foreign languages, which is promoted as part of current public and private educational offers.
