Abstract [en]

The purpose of the essay is to study and create understanding to the bilingual students' perspective on their linguistic skills and the use of them as resources in a scholastic context. A qualitative method has been used to collect empirical data, based on the experiences and perspectives of the students. Bilingualism is defined and past research, which has shown how their bilingualism has influenced them, has been linked with this study. Definition of mother tongue and the meaning of mother tongue tuition for student immigrants' development have been discussed. This research has shown that the students feel their bilingualism is a natural occurrence. A feeling of importance for their mother tongue is expressed, considering the aspect to preserve their cultural fellowship. They look at bilingualism as an opportunity for development and learning and not as an obstacle. Despite the positive attitudes towards their linguistic situation they feel that they have been forced to overlook this competence in scholastic context. Another problem though, is that the mother tongue tuition is experienced as a separate occurrence outside the syllabus of the school, instead of being a part of it.
