abstract

This article presents an approach to analysis of attitudes within a focus group regarding plurilingualism enhancement. In specific, the teachers and their primary school classes were involved in the project Noi e le nostre lingue, realised by the University of Turin to fostering processes of language awareness, namely of éveil aux langues. In the illustrated theoretical and methodological systemic framework, the analysis of focus group conversation will show some clues to attitudes dimensions regarding knowledges, beliefs, expectations, emotions that support the evaluations and the behavioural intentions in this specific context.
