Abstract

This thesis examines how fashionable bilingual education can help some children to become Hungarian dominant bilinguals and what some bilingual teenagers think about the advantages of their bilingualism. Investigating a bilingual group at a secondary school, I will prove that although children can learn two languages parallelly, in this case education alone cannot establish balanced bilingualism in students as their mother tongue gets a stable and firm position. Using a continuous association test, a questionnaire in which students evaluate their own language skills and a word-translation test, I will demonstrate that the investigated group is a Hungarian dominant one if we regard only the vocabulary. Summarizing the results of the questionnaire in which students expound their views about the advantages of acquiring more languages, I will show that these teenagers see the values of bilingualism mainly in utilitirian purposes.
