Promoting Friulian within Multilingual Education: A cross-country, cross-stage, cross-level comparison of Friulian and Basque teachers’ language attitudes and motivation in search of best practices

Project description

Best practices for the promotion of the Friulian language

Friulian is a minority language in Italy’s Friuli Venezia Giulia (FVG). Spoken by just under half of the total population, it is classified as ‘definitely endangered’. However, it has still not been entirely integrated into school programmes. The EU-funded FURLEUS project addresses the issues dealt with in two European Parliament Resolutions on multilingualism and on endangered European languages. By means of a comparative research design, it focuses on teachers' language attitudes, motivation, and practices concerning the promotion of a minority language both in FVG and in the Basque Autonomous Community in Spain, an internationally known context for the success of the revitalisation of the Basque language. Finally, FURLEUS aims at identifying best practices of multilingual education.
