dc.description.abstractThis article reports on a linguistic ethnographic study exploring migrant NGO practitioners’ language learning and maintenance at work. The findings suggest that the migrants learnt not only the language of the receiving society, in this case Finnish, but also English as an additional language through work. The narratives also show that the workplace supported migrants in maintaining both their home language and additional languages. Overall, the study highlights the importance of language learning and maintenance, which promote the linguistic integration and social inclusion of migrant NGO practitioners in the workplace.
dc.description.abstractL’article rend compte d’une étude ethnographique sur l’apprentissage et la consolidation de la langue des praticiens qui travaillent dans des ONG de migrants. Elle conclut que les migrants ont appris non seulement la langue du pays d’accueil – dans ce cas, le finnois – mais aussi l’anglais comme langue supplémentaire, par le biais du travail. Les auteurs montrent également que le travail aide les migrants à consolider la fois leur langue maternelle et des langues étrangères. De façon générale, l’étude souligne l’importance de l’apprentissage et de la consolidation de la langue pour favoriser l’intégration linguistique et sociale des praticiens migrants dans les ONG sur le lieu de travail.
