The Linguistic Features of Migrant Children’s Adaptation



The official registration in Russia gives the right to receive education in Russian schools. However, the admission of a migrant child to school is only the first step. Modern Russian school has faced the problem of integrating migrant children to the Russia educational area. One of the main obstacles to integration is that immigrants speak little Russian or not to speak it at all, while the Russian language is the main medium for migrant children to adapt to the Russian society. This article considers the question of language adaptation of children in order to ensure the required minimum of the command of the language so as to create equal opportunities for further education.
