Comment decrire les representations des langues et de leur apprentissage chez des apprenants ? Comment certaines representations aident-elles les apprenants a construire une identite reflexive dont la dynamique se manifeste a travers les pratiques des langues ? Cet ouvrage s'inscrit dans la ligne des questionnements en linguistique et en didactique et porte sur les conditions dans lesquelles s'opere la construction d'une competence plurilingue chez des eleves scolarises dans les etablissements de Buc, de Fribourg et de Sarrebruck. En s'appuyant sur des donnees empiriques, l'auteure essaie de tirer au clair la facon dont se dessine, a la rencontre des profils typologiques et des traits constitutifs des representations identitaires, le repertoire langagier des eleves franco-allemands.
