Abstract

This article examines Swedish language television viewing among Finnish speakers in Finland. Finnish speakers who watch some Swedish language television are found to have more positive attitudes towards Swedish speakers and the Swedish language. Mediated models suggest that instrumental and integrative language learning motivations differentially mediate the association between Swedish language television viewing and attitudes.
