Teaching first and second languages side by side: challenges of education in the 21st century

Rita Hegedűs (Humboldt-Universität, Berlin)


This paper presently highlights the relation between the knowledge of grammar in the mother tongue and the second language. I would like to examine this particular relation from several aspects; i.e. from the point of view of linguistic methodology, from the developmental psychological perspective, and from the viewpoint of traditional descriptive grammar, with the additional hope of finding some exciting ideas in functional grammar.
