    In my diploma I was reasearching whether movement activities motivate children in learning English language and if English could be integrated into the existing yearly plan of kindergartens. In the theoretical part I described early learning of foreign languages in Slovenia, and in Europe. I included the reasons and advantages of teaching foreign language in preschool age, appropriate teaching approaches at this age and attitudes of the Slovenian White Paper towards early FL learning. I gave the most attention to the Total Physical Response approach which is used in the research. The empirical part contains planning and implementation of English activities in kindergarten. Activities were performed in the period of three months. I gave special emphasis to movement activities. After all the literature was studied and the activities were implemented I discovered that English could easily be included into children's everyday in kindergarten. Children are eager to learn and happily accept new activities. In addition they have a lot of energy which we can readily use through Total Physical Response activities. They can move and learn in a relaxing and easy way through such activities.
