00 SES 11 A, Multiple Facets of Multiple Languages. Deep drilling in Phenomena of Language Development and Education in Multilingual Contexts
The paper will present first results from the 2nd Leo level 1 study (deriving from data collection in 2018). Both, the first and second Leo-study, are concerned with the general question of reasons for adult illiteracy in Germany – a country with a highly developed educational system where nearly 100% of the population participates at least in obligatory schooling. With the 1st Leo-study, first insights in the question how many people in Germany can be assigned to the level of ‘functional illiterates’ were achieved. The estimates added up to 7,5 Mio – a number which is much higher than it was expected. With the 2nd study the authors follow the aim of identifying trends with respect to the levels of adult (il-)literacy in Germany. Background information (e.g. on age, gender, migration background, socio-economic factors) is available for in depth data analysis. The study includes around 7,200 German-speaking adults aged 18 to 64. The size and sample selection allow for conclusions about the total German population. In the presentation, the author will focus on the question: if and in what respects do migrant adults’ results in the Leo-study differ from those of the non-migrant population.
