Latest study: MELA

Bolzano - In June a new study concerning multilingualism will be launched in the Ladin kindergartens. Prof. Ulrike Jessner-Schmid presented it at the Ladin education department.

The new inquiry about multilingualism is called “MELA (MEhrsprachig LAdinisch - Multilingual Ladin)” and will be initiated in June in the kindergartens of Val Gardena and Val Badia. The extensive study, which comprises five phases, has been elaborated by Professor Ulrike Jessner-Schmid of the Leopold-Franzens-University of Innsbruck. The aim of the study that has been introduced in detail at the Ladin education department, is to scrutinize language competence of children in the early years. The examination pursues a holistic approach and is based on the linguistic system of the common underlying proficiency. The first results are expected by 2019. The study is being financed at the request of the member of the provincial government Florian Mussner by the region Trentino-Südtirol. The realisation of the study is assigned to the Ladin school and culture in terms of innovation and consultation as well as to the supervisory authority and the management of the Ladin kindergartens.
