Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to investigate thoughts of pupils in third grade about language, language acquisition, multilingualism and mother tongue. The group is highly multicultural and multilingual which has resulted in many opinions regarding the following issues of conduct: How do the pupils describe their use of their language skills and what do they do to develop them? What thoughts do they have about multilingualism? To what and when do the pupils make use of their mother tongue? A mixed method has been used which makes the study equally quantitative and qualitative. The results show that language is a means of communication encountering people in your daily life, in example at home, school and in your free time. The children show great skills in language usage when they cross the different social arenas during a normal day and also an awareness regarding learning strategies. The pupils’ mother tongues are being used mostly with family though and although multilingualism is considered positive the children do not use all their language capacity when learning a second language.
