Der zwischensprachliche Transfer beim Drittsprachenerwerb – Einstellungen der DeutschlehrerInnen zum Transfer aus dem Englischen ins Deutsche
Languages of publication
Interlingual transfer is a well known phenomenon. Thanks to many psycholinguistic studies it is now known which factors can induce or hinder this kind of transfer. In language teaching publications one can find advice on how teachers can deal with interlingual transfer in language acquisition. It is often stressed that transfer can be both negative and positive. The following article presents the results of a survey which was conducted with German teachers from different school types. The aim of the questionnaire was to recognise the teachers’ attitudes towards the interlingual transfer from English into German. It turned out that even though a lot of teachers consider such transfer as a negative phenomenon, which should be ‘eradicated’, some teachers recognise the positive influence of the English language on the acquisition and use of the German language.
