Exploring the influence of family language policies in developing teenagers’ identification of their multilingualism in Norway


The research project investigates the influence of family language policies on Norwegian secondary school students’ identification of multilingualism and their experiences in and willingness of learning foreign languages namely English as their second (L2) and French/German as their optional third language (L3). It aims to find out how the learners’ tendency or unwillingness to learning the L3 is influenced by the family language policies including the parents' language beliefs and ideologies as well as their language practices in Norwegian families with and without immigration backgrounds.
