Language café and integration : About the meaning of the language café for its participant’s integration process. (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis was to investigate the phenomenon language café, an activity that is held in public libraries into which anyone is welcome who wants to practice their skills in Swedish, and see how this can be put in relation to integration. To reach the purpose we developed two research-questions; What does the language café fulfill for its participants? and How can the language café contribute to the promotion of integration? The study is based on semi-structured interviews with seven participants from language cafés. The theory used to analyze the results from the interviews is the Swedish sociologist José Alberto Diaz theory about the integration process which can be divided into seven dimensions. The findings of the thesis were that the language café can fill the function as a place to Speak Swedish, for Community-information, a place to meet and a place for trust and self-confidence. This can promote the integration process by being a place where people in need of language training can practice their skills in Swedish. It is also working as a meeting place, where one can integrate with other people and other cultures.
