Schüler nichtdeutscher Herkunftssprache lernen Latein
Pupils of non-German origin are taking part in Latin lessons in increasing numbers. While the promotion of German language competence in native speakers is one of the traditional topoi of subject justification, this does not apply to second language learners. International experience, however, gives indications of remarkable potentials of Latin teaching for the development of second language competence.
What are these potentials, what can Latin teaching do to support children and young people of non-German origin? On the basis of new research findings, this volume offers a didactic concept and a wealth of teaching suggestions.
