About mother tongue tuition

The Mother Tongue Centre offers support in mother tongue tuition for children and youth from families where at least one of the parent has another mother tongue than Swedish and is used at home.

For these students, mother tongue tuition is a foundation for learning and an important connection between school and their lives outside school. It is also a tool that can be used in acquiring knowledge. Research shows that complementary mother tongue tuition can facilitate learning in both Swedish and other subjects. Additionally, mother tongue tuition has an importance for the student's identity and self-esteem.
