Werkstattbericht über das Projekt
"Die Südtiroler SchülerInnen und die Zweitsprache:
eine linguistische und sozialpsychologische Untersuchung"
The aim of the project "South-Tyrolean pupils and their second language: a linguistic
and socio-psychological investigation", which was originated in the collaboration between
the EURAC and the University of Trento, is to analyze the second language competence of
South-Tyrolean pupils and to contextualize the results of such an investigation by commenting
on crucial sociolinguistic and psychosocial aspects that influence it. In this paper some
preliminary results of the project's preparatory study, i.e. an interview study as well as
focus groups, are presented.
