Ориентационни фактори при изучаването на български език в академична небългарска езикова среда

Данка Aпостолова


In this article the results of an empirical pilot study of orientation in learning Bulgarian by German speakers in an academic non-Bulgarian language environment are analysed with the aim to outline the temporal orientation profile of the target group from the learners perspective. The empirically obtained results show the merging integrative-instrumental character of its orientation. They allow comparability and can be used further to examine the dynamics of the phenomenon, its correlations with motivational and attitudinal variables, for a comparative results analysis of empirical studies with target groups learning Bulgarian or other L2 in a similar or different environment.
