  2. Hei, olen tekemässä pro-gradu tutkielmaa Luxemburgin Yliopistossa (Master in language & communication in multilingual & multicultural contexts), koskien Itävallan koulujärjestelmästä “kotoisin olevista” n.s kielimuotokuvista/portreteista (sprachenportraits, esim. Gogolin, Neumann, Krumm, Busch). Eräs tuttavani muisti osallistuneensa seminaariin jossa kerroit käyttäneesi k.o. siluetteja ja löysin myös tällaisen s.4 esitelmässäsi “The educational challenge on multilingualism in Europe”. Tutkielmani nimi on “Language Portraits – what can they tell us”, ja olisin erittäin kiinnostunut mielipiteisistäsi ja kokemuksistasi kieliportrettien lomassa. Etukäteen kiittäen ja ystävällisin terveisin, Mia Larusson Norrena, Canach, Luxemburg

  3. Good day Dr. Kivinen. I would like to ask permission if I can use the instrument you used in your study “Assessing Motivation and the Use of Learning Strategies by Secondary School Students in Three International Schools”. I am planning to use this in my thesis for my Master’s degree. I hope for your utmost positive response regarding this matter. Thank you very much Sir.
