Today, when the quantity of information that we have at our disposal in every domain of knowledge is huge, and the quality that we can achieve is particularly high, creativity is a major cross-curricular goal in education. The optimal management of the gigantic pool of information that we have available and the creation of new associations between ideas, new concepts can not be accomplished in the absence of creativity. In this context, within the foreign language class, creativity can play a double role, of the premise and the objective to be attained. Relying on the creative potential of children, the teacher can imagine contexts and activities to facilitate the learning of language structures and vocabulary related to the children’s familiar universe and daily activities. At the same time, it is precisely such contexts that can positively influence the development of the creative potential of small learners who are making their first steps towards discovering a new languages and civilisations.
