ERG SES D 10, Mobility and Education
The purpose of this study is to explore the variation of immigrant pupils’ skills of Finnish as a second language in the sixth grade. The study also explores how the variables (mother tongue, gender, educational background of the pupils’ parents, the age and reason of moving to Finland and the time lived in Finland) and teaching arrangements such as preparatory stage, lessons in mother tongue and Finnish as a second language influence the pupils’ Finnish language proficiency. In addition, the purpose of this research is to study the link between the language used by the pupil and the level of Finnish.
