FIRST LANGUAGES IN PRESCHOOL : A study of what kind of support children with another first language than Swedish receive at some preschools in a municipality in Mid-Sweden (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to see how preschool teachers can support multilingual children and promote their development in their first languages. It was chosen to look at a specific municipality to see how the preschool teachers there work with multilingual children. By using the method of structured interviews, it was learnt that they do, in fact, work actively with multilingual children. The preschool teachers interviewed received the same questions in order to make the answers as comparable and measurable as possible. The results seem to indicate that more resources are needed to fulfil the needs of children with another first language than Swedish. The representatives of the municipality have chosen to concentrate on the two foreign languages that are the most common among the multilingual children in the municipality, viz. Arabic and Somali. Children who have other first language receive no formal training in their first language in preschool. One reason for the modest number of first-language teachers in the municipality – one in Arabic and one in Somali – is the fact that it is hard to find and recruit qualified first-language teachers.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna undersökning är att se hur några pedagoger på förskolan kan stötta flerspråkiga barn och främja deras språkutveckling i modersmålet. En kommun valdes ut för att se hur de arbetar med flerspråkiga barn. Genom att använda metoden strukturerade intervjuer framkom att pedagogerna faktiskt arbetar aktivt med de flerspråkiga barnen. Resultaten verkar tyda på att det skulle behövas mer resurser för att tillgodose behoven hos de barn som har ett annat förstaspråk än svenska. Kommunens representanter har valt att koncentrera sig på de två språk som är vanligast bland kommunens flerspråkiga barn, nämligen arabiska och somaliska. Barn med andra förstaspråk får ingen formell undervisning i sina förstaspråk i förskolan. En anledning till det blygsamma antalet modersmålslärare i kommunen – en i arabiska och en i somaliska – är det faktum att det är svårt att hitta och rekrytera kvalificerade modersmålslärare.
