Abstract [en]

The Aim of this study is to examine how newly arrived Somali students use their mother tongue as a method of support for the students to comprehend the Swedish language in a preparation class. The conclusion of my study originates from three key questions:  

  1. How do the students use their mother tongue as a method of support in a preparation class?
  2. In which situations (with who and when) do they use their mother tongue as a method of support?
  3. Which resources do the students use to support them with their mother tongue?

To conduct the study I have used the qualitative method called participant observation. This is a technique in which I follow and observe two students in three different times. The study is based on previous research on second language development.

The results shows the different ways students use their mother tongue and how all the different aspects prove to be significant in the students language development. The basic knowledge and experience they have from their first language is very helpful for the development of the students second language. The results also shows that the students use various types of code-switching to communicate with each other and how the group support each other through their mother tongue.
