Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to investigate the ability of multilingual children to develop their mother tongue in preschool and what language developmental methods the pedagogues use to contribute to this. To answer this, the questions were broken down to investigate the availability of mother tongue support, how the pedagogues draw attention to children’s different native languages in the business, and what language developing approaches they use.

 

Through interviews with active pedagogues in pre-schools, the different conditions under which children are being supported in developing their mother tongue, how the mother tongue is highlighted in activities, and the different teaching methods of the pedagogues to develop children's languages is made visible. The study's results showed that pre-schools are aware of the importance of the mother tongue in language development and therefore offer the children some form of mother tongue support. They also try to help children learn each other's mother tongue and cultures to show openness to each other, but also gave examples of many different language developing ways of working.

 

To provide children with a language rich environment through interaction and conversation is the prerequisite for a good language development. By doing this in a language relevant for the child, pedagogues can provide support and opportunities for the child to develop their mother tongue, which facilitates secondary language learning.

 

The idea is to contribute knowledge and awareness about how pre-school pedagogues should and need to work with the mother tongue development of multilingual children to support the development of a second language
