Abstract [en]

By the means of a questionnaire the present work examines the

attitudes among pupils between the 5th and 9th grade towards

choosing French, Spanish or German as their third language. The main

question to be answered is "What needs to be improved to raise the

interest in choosing specifically German as their preferred third

language?". The other questions posed are for example "Do they want

to study a language at all?", "Which language do they want to study

and why?" or "What motivates them to keep studying generally?". The

results show a high motivation and that the most pupils have already

decided for a specific language at the middle of the 5th grade. Family

and friends play a crucial role in choosing their language in

combination with other factors such as the experiences of visiting

countries or settings where the target language is used. To raise the

popularity of German as the chosen language is not a short time

project. More variation in teaching and real contact with German

people, for instance language trips, needs to be done or improved.

Nearly all of the pupils want to use modern techniques like chat or

video conversations instead of just reading a text book.
